Good afternoon all... To begin let me just say Happy Veterans Day to ALL of those who have served or are serving. Second of all you have seen that I didn't blog yesterday. The reason being yesterday was Sunday and as you have all probably figured out by now, I don't blog on Sunday's as it is the Lord's day and I spend time with my family on this day thus on Sunday's....no blog.
The blog for today came to me as I have been looking long and hard into this topic. For a long time I was never able to talk about it or even understand it but now I do as I have looked long and deep into the relationships. As I write upon this topic I want you to think about and try to see where I am going with this topic.
Love is a word that many in today's society has trouble truly understanding and even doing. Love is not only a very special word but an act that God has instructed upon us to do. The problem is though that when showing love people don't take time to understand that it truly means also that we are to respect the other person....not only in what they say or do but in some of the things that are ask of the other individual. The fact is that if you love somebody enough you are going to do everything possible to make the relationship work. As a matter of fact we are suppose to live love by what 1 Corinthians tells us :
1 Corinthians 13:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it
keeps a record of no wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always
You can see that with the description of what love truly is that God gives us, that no matter what, if you love the other person enough that you are going to compromise and agree upon what it is each other wants. For example if a couple gets married and one individual wants a pre-nup then the if the other individual loves that individual enough and has the faith enough to know nothing is going to happen, then that individual should agree to signing. If one individual doesn't want or can't have children then the other individual loves that individual enough then they will respect that. In other words when in a relationship make sure that each individual in it respects the other's wishes and if you love each other enough then all will work out and come forth. Love is not just a little four letter word to be taken lightly; instead it is a four letter word that people need to take strongly and learn in that they need to respect each other and each other's wishes. So, the question for you today is this....if you are in a relationship are respecting each other and acknowledging the needs or desires of what the other individual is wanting ? Are you understanding and loving the other person enough to agree to what is going on in their life ? OR are you being selfish and only going for what YOU want ? In any case.....always make sure that you respect your mate.
