Be careful how you deal with people.
Do not say, “why should I care about them, it is their trouble”.
You see, God will judge us not by how many children or jobs or certificate we had. He will judge us by how we treated other people: our neighbor, our colleague, our children, our wives, our husbands, our children, our fathers, our enemies, our siblings. How do you love others? How do you show God’s love to others?.
Practical Ways To Love Others
Do not ignore that beggar who asks from you. God commanded, “Give to all who asks from you?”
Do not ignore that neighbor who is in pain from an abusive relationship or other family challenges. Do not say, “Why should I care?”. A few words of comfort could release him/her from depression and a suicidal heart.
In every business deal, always remember the interests of the other party. “Business” or “making profits” should not be the primary aim when dealing with people. Sharing and mutual growth should be our focus.
Employers should not grow their business at the expense of the employees. Employers should grow materially together with their employees. Pay their wages and salaries. God hears the cry of their hard-unpaid labor.
Love and respect your spouse. Do not take him/her for granted. Be sensitive to each other’s needs. Wash each other’s feet. Avoid verbal abuse. Do not seek dominion over the other. Show her the affection she desires. Give him the respect and honor he expects.
Do not ignore that child. Do not pursue career and money at the expense of the children. Make your children happy by spending time with them. Give no selfish excuse.
Lead no one into temptation. Do not follow the example of Eve who caused the falling of her husband. You lead men into temptation when you dress half-covered. The eyes cause many to fall into sin but woe unto she who is the cause of the falling.
Help the elderly.
Lend to all who want to borrow from you.
Be kind to everyone. Be quick to make peace. Do not take pleasure at the pain and suffering of others. Reject jealousy and bitterness.
Importance Of Loving Others
If you love people, you are obeying God’s second most important commandment.
God commanded, love your neighbor as yourself. Do unto others what you want others to do to you.
If you do this, you will win your life at His tribunal on the last day.
