Biblical Principles for Godliness: How and When to Show Neighborly Love, Care, Mercy and Forgiveness

The Bible exhorts us to love everyone without hypocrisy (Romans 12:9). Our love should be the love that has been shown to us by Jesus, who laid down his own life for us (John 13:34). This kind of love is called “agape” in Greek. Such love “is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) So does this mean that we should allow others to take advantage of us?

Do You Esteem Others Above Yourself or Are You Too Tall to Bend Down in Humility and Meekness?

Do you give to everyone what you owe? Do you give respect to whom respect is due and honor to whom honor? (Romans 13:7, WEB) When we rise from our seats to greet a newcomer, help an elderly person across the street, care for our parents when they are in need, and abide by the laws of our government, we show our humility, giving to others what are rightfully due: love, honor, and respect.

Biblical Principles to Maintain and Uphold the Sanctity of Marriage Between Husband and Wife

Why are wedding vows broken so often? How can lovers remain together and keep their promises to each other?

Are You A Giver Or A Taker In Your Relationships?

Make sure you’re a giver, and not a matcher – someone who remembers every little thing they gave and expects the equal amount in return, or they’re just not happy. Give from the heart because you want to. I think you’ll agree that’s true love and the foundation of something beautiful.

Show Kindness and Compassion to Your Enemies: But Why and How?

Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies.” (Matthew 5:43, 44, WEB) Love our enemies? How in the world can we like our enemies, let alone love them? And why should we even love our enemies if they have deliberately hurt us?

Breaking the Cycle of Abandonment

If you’re discontented in a relationship or go from one to another or even remain unhappily alone, you may be caught in a worsening cycle of abandonment. People tend to think of abandonment as something physical, like neglect. Loss of physical closeness due to death, divorce, and illness is also an emotional abandonment.

Love Paradox

We are often lonely, even after getting married. This is the paradox of love. There is selfless and unconditional love in the beginning. Within a short period, it changes to possessive love. There are ego clashes, leading to lack of mutual respect and love. In some cases love turns to hatred. Love is ‘to let the spouse be happy in own way’. In true love, the selfless, and honest spouses, look after the family as an integrated team. We need God’s blessings to enjoy the bliss of mutual love and respect, in old age.

The Circle of Love: The Highest Experience in Life

Have you ever experienced a circle of love? A circle of love occurs when two or more people are together with completely open hearts – open with their essence, with each other and with Spirit. When we are deeply connected with our core self and with the love and sustenance of Spirit, and we are sharing our love with others – and they are doing the same – a circle of love occurs.

Why Do My Relationships Fail?

It is my belief that there are two parts of us that need to be involved in any relationship. There is our inner self and our outer self. The self that we are most familiar with and tend to lead with is our outer self. Our eyes and our smells and our hearing all come alive when we first meet someone. Our brains are working overtime analyzing massive amounts of data in fractions of seconds to figure out whether this person may be the one.
