Let Us Love One Another
When I hear people make statements such as ‘I just don’t like him, I don’t know why’ or ‘I have never liked him’, I try to find out what it is that they don’t like about the person who they seem not to even know anything about ‘cos more often than not, the feelings you have towards those you hardly know shows the kind of self-esteem you have.
The world has a way of making us believe that hatred is normal but loving takes a whole lot of strength and hardwork which ain’t true.
Love is the easiest thing. It is easier to smile and say hello than to frown and keep the frown as straight as possible. Even the heart gets disturbed and our whole being get disrupted in their activities while trying to express the hatred inside of us and probably through our body language.
Frowning which is just one of the expression of hatred is more taxing than smiling which is an expression of love. It has been said/ published in a number of articles that it takes fewer muscles to smile than it takes to frown.
In actual fact, it is said to take 17muscles to smile while it takes 43muscles to frown.
Nelson Mandela said in one of his famous quote that;
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
It is also worthy of note that we understand what the bible says about this, for the bible is the manual for living a Christ-Like life and only by living a Christ-Like life can we be a true Christian.
I will want you to truthfully answer this question, ‘Are you a child of God?’
“Dear friends, let us love one another, because love comes from God. Whoever loves is a child of God and knows God.” ~ 1John 4:7 (GNT)
