Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
– Matthew 11:29
For I am gentle and humble in heart…
is a difficult task to do… To be meek and gentle of heart leads one to go beyond oneself, to serve and to bless others with their gifts.
The sermont on the mount is beautiful. God’s ways are always bigger, higher, and mightier than ours. He teaches us and provided us with a manual of living a life on Earth, just as He did. He didn’t promise us a life filled without sorrows or sufferings but living in obedience to His ways, His teachings, and His life will bring us true joy.
A happiness, peace that surpasses all human knowledge and understanding. It’s a gift, freely given. How blessed we are! To receive the gift of faith we have to treasure it, to treat it as our prized possession. To guard it for life.
Unbreakable bonds …
What does it mean to love self and neighbor with the love of God?
We are all broken beings. We can’t love God fully but only with what He’s given us. His love transforms. Allows one to give birth to a greater love. Acts of charity- love of the neighbour. Because how can we say we love God when we fail to love our brothers and sisters who make up- The Body of Christ?
Love, a sacred unity between person or person(s). It is neither a feeling nor slight affection or attraction but rather a decision based on loving the other whole-heartedly. Regardless of the desired outcome or a change of situation that arises. Checking our emotions will be a good gauge if we truly loved another with pure intent.
Loving means to let go. To detach ourselves and to love another for their good. Only because God purifies our hearts so that we may learn to love more fully and completely like Him. Without any pretense, but with a genuine love interest for another.
