Living A Life Of Unconditional Love 

What is unconditional love?  

Wikipedia defines unconditional love as affection without any limitations or love without conditions. 

Loving someone no matter what their faults are is challenging.  Christianity teaches us to love others in every situation.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV / 322 helpful votes

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Patience now there is a word so misunderstood and misused.   I remember when I was a child my mother was always saying to me “You have no patience! You need to learn patience!”

So confusing as a child.  I always thought she ment I needed to become a doctor to have patients. 

When a situation arises that is out of our control do we handel it the best way possible?  

For example a loved one becomes critically ill, on lifesupport what can a person do?  Nothing! Praying, waiting being patient for the outcome.

Insisting on its own way 

Love sees through all things.  Never putting itself first. Compromising first before giving into another.  

Arguments occur between one another. That’s a given fact.  It’s how we respond during that moment weather in a soft spoken word or a harsh tone will reflect true love.

Releasing Emotions

What’s keeping you from living a life of unconditional love?  

Resentment, anger, hatred, the list goes on.  Find it in yourself to let them go.  Release those emotions, open up your soul, free yourself and you can begin to live a life of unconditional love.

Thought and comment are always welcome.

Gain The Advantage!

Be My Valentine

Happy Valentines Day Readers,

Would you be my valentine?  Have you ever wondered how this holiday came to be?  Yes,  there’s a religious meaning to Valentines Day. 

According to Wikipedia.com Saint Valentine’s history is quite interesting https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day.

Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.[3] According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius,[4] and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell.[5]

In trouble with the authorities for spreading love to the world.  How injust, how unfair was that?  With all the moaning I read about and see in the news about ( me, myself and I ),  it’s a relief to read about an actual person who was making a change in the world.

From my point of view it’s wrong to imprisoned someone for spreading love to others.

When you’re grabbing those flowers, cards, taking her (or his) hands into yours; remember one man made it possible for you to continue to spread the message of love and hope.  Jesus Christ is the ultimate sign of unconditional love.    To be nailed to a cross, left to die when  he could have stopped the torture by calling down all the angels from heaven proving to non believers that he was in fact the Messiah would have been the easiest thing to do.   Yet Jesus choose to endure the pain and suffering so we (mortal men) could obtain forgiveness from the Heavenly Father and show unconditional love to others.

Would You Be My Valentine?
