Genuine Love

I don't usually go to church, that just isn't my thing. But, I felt inclined to do so one day. The main topic at hand was that we were there to worship, and to re-establish faith in God. By doing that, we would become closer to God. Getting closer meant that we had a stronger a hope, a hope given to us by our faith in God. Why do we have faith? Because God is who he says is he is, and does what he says he does. By having hope and faith, we can attempt to love genuine. If you love genuine, you can live genuine. The preacher had brought about a point that if there was no afterlife, he would care for himself and his own. But, then, he said, because he is promised and eternity with Jesus, he can afford to give his love to others.

I completely disagree with the point he rose.

Basically, what he was trying to say is that he "loved genuinely."I would have no problem, but he said that genuine love is when you love someone without question, and would give your help to those around you if you had the ability(which brings up another point to argue that I will mention, albeit briefly.) You would give your love without expecting anything in return. But, that just brings up the point again, of if there was no afterlife, no "eternity with Jesus" then he wouldn't do squat for others. I don't know if you think the same way, but is he not only helping others because of what he is promised?

But, let's back up slightly to argue another point that I think ties in nicely. He said, you lose the love if you have the ability to help someone, and don't. Should you not offer you help, even if you don't have the ability? I mean, can't you at least try to help them? I am not telling you to throw yourself at anyone in need, but if they come to you for help, or are obviously dying for a hand, offer it to them. You don't need to solve their problem, just help it.

Let's get back to the main subject. I think that I would rather reject someone's love who was only deciding to help me, to love me, because they were promised that eternity. Would you not? It is just the same as someone who loves you for something material that you own. (I.E. money, clothes, etc.)

I think that ties in all the facts about the situation, so now it is time for some opinion.

I don't know about you, but I will offer my hand to just about anyone in need. I find that hate and love are both very strong words. My heart is very big, and has room for every single person out there. Yes, I could say that I love everyone. It takes a lot to tick me off, to rouse me to a point where I will even consider using the word hate to describe my relationship with someone. I barely hold grudges, and the ones I do subside quickly. I find what I do to be true love, to be genuine? Why? I don't expect an eternity in return, I don't really expect anything except for maybe their smiles.

There are people who would the opposite, purposefully hurt people; emotionally, and physically. I find that to be utterly wrong. I wish this behavior would change, so I do what I can. As Ghandi said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." So, as a result, if I see this going, I step in and to my part to help the one who is hurt. I won't adamantly defend as if they were my best friend, but I will let them know that they have an ally. It is just wrong, to wish harm unto people. I may not be able to help every single case, but I if I can help one, that makes all the difference. One true smile is better than ten fake ones.



[title=This post was intended for another place, so I have questions.]What is genuine love to you? Do you give it? Receive it? Do you expect anything in return for your love? Don't feel obligated to answer within these guidelines, they are merely something to chew on.[/title]
