“Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”
For life, prosperity and honor, we pursue righteousness and love. That means we seek to do what is right and we love others. We seek to forgive others, understand them, and love them. That does not mean that we forget to do what’s right, forget to hold others accountable, or ignore wrong doing, but we do forgive and love others. This approach is better than getting angry and turning to wrath, or starting to worry, because those paths only lead to more trouble.
And … Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret; it leads only to evil. (Psalm 37:8)
The worse thing we can do is stress out or ignore doing what’s right or forget to act in loving ways. We must stay clear on both our responsibility to love as evolved beings and our need for love from others.
We need love from others, we need to stay in good vibes, and keep a positive mindset.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24)
By receiving love from our Creator, being in loving relationships with others, and living in loving environments, we fill ourselves with love which produces a blossoming in our lives of more love.
Yes, truly, from our blossoming like flowers, we bring forth fruit of the Spirit, producing more love and more blessings to share with others.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; (Galatians 5:22-23 ESV)
We must live by faith and have hope in the loving kingdom to come, yet, above all, we keep ourselves in a place of love through our belief that love exists.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
We are the hands, feet and body of our Creator on the earth. We must love one another as cells of a body supports itself, how hands can rub one another’s feet, and how feet carry the body.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. (1 Corinthians 12:27)
Love is about reaching out and meeting the needs of others. Sometimes meeting someone’s needs is as simple as a smile or sharing a word of encouragement. There are many ways to show the love of our Creator of All That Is.
Do you see a need in someone’s life that you can meet?
We can all look for ways to put our love into action.
Life, prosperity and honor
So now we know, the “good life” that we all desire springs from a blossoming of love and the fruit of the Spirit. And from this we receive joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
To be in love in a synchronous way is absolute bliss. It feels like being a flower receiving the light of the sun in glorious beauty for all to share in. Together, in love relationships, we truly blossom and overflow with the fruit of the Spirit. This is what life is all about! L O V E !
As we publish this article on Valentine’s Day 2020, we both celebrate love and the history of Valentine’s Day. The history of Valentine’s Day goes back to a Saint named Valentine who lost his life while helping and loving others.
Valentine’s Day is all about love, which makes it a special holiday because love is so special and so universal. It is about loving others, whether we have someone special that we love romantically, or we are sharing love with friends and family, or we are loving our community and neighbors.
Above all, we love our Creator who loved us first, who made us in love, and who gives us love.
