How do you see the world? Have you ever thought to yourself “what happened to the world I knew”? It seems every generation complains about the last one, things were easier then; it was not as complicated as it is now. You don’t realize what I have to contend with on a daily bases or that proverbial that was then, this is now attitude. But I ask what has really changed? Sure there have been many advancements; science, medicine, technology, and industry the list goes on. Yet, mankind remains the same.
In every generation there are those who prey on the weak, who would sell their souls for wealth, that deal in deceit, warmongers, and faithless people. However, there are also those who love mercy, justice, peace, care for the poor, are truth bearers, and who love and follow Jesus the Christ faithfully. It is said “the eyes are the window to the soul”, If I looked into our eyes what would I see? What would your soul say to me? Would I be looking into dark water or a clear blue stream?
It is also said “actions speak louder than words”, the question then becomes what are you saying by your actions? From one generation to the other mankind has failed to grasp what is truly most beneficial to its growth and harmony; that is to look at the world through the lens of LOVE. Love is the motivating force for all that is good in mankind. Love promotes equality, fairness, self awareness, respect, peace, compassion, honesty, forgiveness, it doesn’t divide and it makes sacrifices.
Love puts you before me, it doesn’t seek rewards or accolades; it seeks what is best for all, it is not selfish. However, one can only look at the world through the lens of love when love is present in the heart. Mankind needs a heart transplant, it needs the heart of Jesus the Christ; true Love begins with Him being present in the life of every created being. The light of His love will shine through you lighting the way to life, as a lighthouse atop a hill guides the ships through the darkness to a safe harbor; so shall you be to lost souls needing rescue from this dark world.
A beacon of hope generated by love that comes from the Father, we are all His children; no matter how sinful we maybe He still looks at us through the lens of LOVE.
My revelation as I sit by the pool of grace.
