Do we believe that love could revolutionize the world? What are tangible ways that we could love better?
All of us are blessed with great qualities and gifts. Recently I was meditating on 3 qualities; Faith, Hope, Love! Little did I realize that one of the three is greater than the rest! I have read about it but, I had certainly talked about it but, honestly, I had not let this truly seep into a personal reflection and ‘application’ until I really began to let in ‘digest’ inside me!
We humans have this tendency to center our attention on anything based on our gifts and accomplishments, we call this our ‘experiences’. In management and Leadership, this is considered a key factor for success!
The worldly standard for defining success is by far, the standard of measure today!
FAITH: If I have faith as much as a mustard seed, then I can move a mountain! It makes me realize that because I have this positive and strong attitude, I can be above others! What I also do not realize is that this makes me proud and arrogant!
Experiences and nature also proves that faith can reach and grow people!
HOPE: My daily work routine required that I must have hope in a person and this I can do all the time! Its not necessary to love the person we have hope in, its more of our expectation of that person for what he or she is doing for us!
Experience and nature also proves that hope can reach and grow people too!
LOVE: Love never fails; it never comes short. Love involves caring and giving, selflessness and sacrifice. Love reaches and grows people far more than any other gift or quality. True love is a clearly a gift of God because one can know true love only as we come to know the love of God!
Experience and nature proves that love is not in our human nature, but in the nature of God. God is love. Therefore, when we love a person, we can have genuine hope in the person.
Without question, what our world needs more than anything else is love. If people loved each other, really loved each other, there would be no more war, crime, abuse, injustice, poverty, hunger, homelessness, deprivation, or immorality. Love is the one ingredient that could revolutionize society. Love is the greatest quality of human life. Love is the supreme quality, the most excellent way for us to live.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
