Command2

Theme: Make your life meaningful

God’s love for us is a mandate and a command. We need to respond not by mere feelings but with decisive conviction. Feelings come and go as they wish; instead love is a mandate, a choice, a decision, and a commitment to do things the best way possible. That is why Jesus is commanding us to love others. It’s what we do to others, not how we feel toward them that matters.

Theme: Nothing can quarantine us from the love of God

Through the centuries, humanity has been beset by a myriad of illnesses some of which have altered the course of history. For example, in 1348 the Black Death or Bubonic plague first reached Europe from the East. By 1350, more than half the population of the continent had died. In about 20 years, the plague reduced the population of the civilized world by 75 percent! In 1918 influenza claimed more than 20,000,000 people worldwide; with more than 548,000 succumbing in Africa alone.

In the 1940s, polio swept the world, leaving thousands crippled and maimed in its wake. Nearer to our times, cancers of all kind continue to afflict and kill thousands, Malaria still kill people today in millions while Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and EBOLA have yet to be completely understood and are far from being controlled. When these and so many other common ailments strike, one of the first reactions is to quarantine the sick so as to protect the healthy. Separated from rest of society, those held in quarantine suffer doubly, first from their illness and then from the isolation. In the ancient world, victims of leprosy knew all too well this double dose of suffering.

Theme: Only true love matters

Once in a while, the daily gloomy reporting of the world’s violence, wars, hatred and inhumanity is pierced by an account of selfless courage and self-sacrifice. One such account featured the heroism of St. Maximilian Kolbe. He was a priest prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp between 1939 and 1945 when the Jews were being executed by Hitler. Fr. Maximilian Kolbe surprised his executioners when he spontaneously offered himself to replace a randomly chosen prisoner who was to be killed in place of one prisoner who had escaped. This priest of courage, without hesitation, jumped into the line and asked to substitute one victim because he had family to take care of even if it meant a few days. When interviewed minutes before execution about his heroic efforts, Maximilian Kolbe said simply, “Nobody else was doing anything. It was the only way.” Similar accounts of heroism tell of people rushing into buildings, engulfed in fire, in order to save the life of another at the risk of loosing their life.

Once in a while, I come across great inspiration on the net. A friend this morning forwarded me the following words in an email. I don’t know real, so pardon my failure to make appropriate acknowledgments.

The message contains a powerful message of parenting, friendship and love.  Even if you don’t read anything else today, the following message will indeed change the way you look at people. And hey, if you can build relationships, respect colleagues, the world is yours to conquer.

Now why not take just two minutes to read the following message and change your life. Below is the powerful message for your success:Love-You-Dad-on-Car
