How would you answer the question, “What would love to do?”
So it seems I’ll be on this journey at least for now in answering the question. So let’s explore that here for a few minutes.
Think about what you would do at every intersection of your choices today if love was your first priority? What would you post on social media? What would you tell your family when you talk to them?
If love has its voice at every turn of your life what would that mean to you? I think it’s safe to say that it would cause change in everyone’s life.
By no means am I saying that you would starve to death because out of love you would feed every child that was hungry. How would this be loving your own family that needs food too? So love at times can seem almost selfish.
Is love at times selfish?
What about stopping an intruder coming after your family in your home, would you consider stopping them to the point that they died an act of love? I think so.
What about our military and civic servants who protect our way of life, when they die protecting us was that an act of love? I think so. What if they kill someone in the process of protecting the innocent? If that is not done in love they probably need to get a different job.
What about you? Can you file papers all day long in love? I think so. In fact I am very confident that you can do everything you do in life with attitude of, “I am doing this in love for my fellow-man”.
Now like I talk to in the previous post this has nothing to do with romantic love. This is a much bigger topic than that. Because it does not change with looks or any other factor that time affects and has everything to do with the core of who we are.
What would you do?
What would you do if you found out you’re going to die in 60 days, and a billionaire gave you unlimited resources with one catch you had to spend the first billion loving others? Who would you talk to? What would you say?
Would you put your time into finding that “perfect one”? Or would you spend your time and money investing in the lost kids of the world helping them have a life that you won’t have?
I think you would do the latter, but why?
I think at the heart of every person is a desire to love others. I think we were created as part of our ability to live and thrive to love others. And without it we die!
