Love One Another
Two Bible passages filled my head this morning after I heard the horrible news from New Zealand.
One from John 13:34: " A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another" and the other from Matthew 22: 37-40: Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Yes, I am Christian, but these words should apply to ALL humankind. It doesn't matter what your faith is or isn't, we are all of this world and we need to love and care for each other. We need condemn hatred and live lives of caring and kindness.
We need to LIVE our lives. We need to LIVE and not fear. We need to act in kindness. We need to act with compassion. We need to stop looking at the differences and start looking at the similarities. We need to give love and receive love.
We are one people with one planet. We all share it. If we cannot LIVE together and work towards harmony then the whole thing is pointless.
LIVE your life.
CARE for others.
TEACH by example.
CREATE a better world.
LEAD with empathy
What a powerful world we could create and give to future generations if we could just do this.
Live and Love...not just words but applications for all humankind.
