Subverted LOVE

People nowadays are subverting love. They tend to CORRUPT LOVE for they were afraid on experiencing Hurt, Rejection, and the FEAR of being ALONE . . .”again”.

So, to avoid being HURT, people make sure they have the RIGHT “love.” They tend to have STANDARDS. Like, if he/she only do this, this is ‘already’ LOVE, blah, blah, blah *ugh*

But, seriously, it’s sad. Because according to Proverbs 10:12, “LOVE COVERS OVER ALL SINS.”

–that was a hitting verse, eh?

But truly, love covers ALL sins. It doesn’t LIST the GOOD things and BAD things that a certain person did to you! If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will not remember the bad things people did, consciously or unconsciously, to you. GOD will FORGIVE you IF you forgive others FIRST (Matthew 6:15).

If you still can’t have the strength to FORGIVE, ask God to increase your faith and tell Him to help you forgive those people. JUST BELIEVE that you RECEIVED the Faith and WALK BY FAITH too!
God loves you! NO IF’s, But’s, Because’s! He loves you U.N.C.O.N.D.I.T.I.O.N.A.L.L.Y

–IF you believe that God is alive and He loves you, I assure you, right now, that you won’t be CRAVING for the HUMAN LOVE “again!”

God bless! 😀

The Mayonnaise, Jar, and Coffee

I bumped into this story. I even can’t remember what is the site where I saw this so I included the author’s name (of course) and decided to share it to everyone; to touch everyone. 🙂

The Mayonnaise Jar and Coffee

by: Sherri-Craftymom

 

When things in your life are almost too much to handle,
when 24 hours is just not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar,
and the coffee…..

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items
in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a
very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with
golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them
into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the
open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students
again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the
Jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once
More if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous
“YES”.

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the
table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you
to recognize that this jar represents you life. The golf balls are
the important things – your family, your children, your health,
your friends, and your favorite passions – things that if
everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would
still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your
House, and your car.

The sand is everything else – the small stuff. “If you put the
sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the
pebbles or the golf balls.

The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on
the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are
important.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play with your children! Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your wife/husband/lover/friend out to dinner. Maybe even
play another 18. There is always time to clean the house and
fix the disposal.

Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and enquired what the coffee
represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just
goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there
is always room for a couple cups of coffee with a friend.”

Please share this with your coffee friend …. I just did.
