The simplest solution to the problems the world faces in a nutshell is love. Love that is genuine in nature consisting of compassion, sensitivity to the feelings and plight of others, a willingness to make another person’s life better: the only kind there really is. There is no other kind of true love. Love is absent of greed, maliciousness, callousness, insensitivity, selfishness. If only love was practiced in the true sense of the word, our human existence would be one of harmony and peace in spite of our many differences. The problem is that everyone is looking at everyone else to make a change when each person should really be looking inside of himself and let the change begin there.
If God treated us the careless way we sometimes treat each other, we’d think that He was a heartless God who never kept His word. Yet, we nonchalantly do that very thing to each other and expect God’s greatest blessings to flow upon our lives. If we think they’re flowing now in spite of our ways, the reality of the matter is, things are subject to change. Each of us will, at some point, reap a harvest from the seeds we’ve planted – whether they be good or bad. Every day, in every way, it is crucial that we take inventory and really examine ourselves — or one day wish we did.
Don’t expect to receive any different from what you have given out. If you gossip, slander or back-bite, don’t expect peace. If you are jealous and envious, don’t expect uncommon favor and unfathomable blessings — they will never find their way to you. If you are hateful and unsympathetic, don’t expect true love and understanding to show up at your doorstep. Be careful what you give in life for likewise is what you will definitely receive.
