Love frees others from our grasp–and lets them return on their own. Love is placing another’s personal needs above our own, without regret. Love is selfless, yet it exhilarates the self. Giving love softens our edges, completes us, and connects us to the people with whom we are fulfilling our destinies.
You Never Know Who Is Entering Your Path In Each And Every Moment! I Have Been Told Angels Are All Around Us!
This why I will always cherish those who cross my Path!
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
The greatest gift we can give one another is rapt attention to one another’s existence.
We all want to matter to others. Very often in the past and sometimes in the present, our behavior screams for the attention we seek from others. Perhaps, instead of trying to get attention, we ought to give generously.
Those people close to us and those just passing through our lives have reason to be there from Him. Giving attention to another’s humanity is our calling!
Wisdom of the ages also dictates that in life there are no accidents.
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
We are each powerless over others, which relieves us of a great burden. Controlling our own behavior is a big enough job. Learning to behave responsibly takes practice. Most of us have in the past have behaved irresponsibly. Emotional immaturity is slow to depart, but every responsible action we take gives us the courage for another – and then another. Our own fulfillment is the by-product of the accumulation of our own responsible actions. Others’ actions need not concern us.
“The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick alongside it.”
