We were born for relationships! We can build stronger relationships.
From the moment we were conceive in our mother’s womb, we entered into a maternal relationship. That is why it takes humans years to be independent of their parents. We are the only species belonging to the animal kingdom that needs to be cuddled, to be fed, put to sleep, be cleaned, dressed, needed older people in order to learn to speak or communicate.
Other animals can just go run and frolic right away and be independent a few moments after being born. They can feed themselves, doesn’t have to be put to sleep, to be cleaned, dressed, or needed older animals to teach them how to bleep.
Humans needed to be loved. Love is the first emotional response a mother will feel the first time she sees her baby no matter the circumstances of her conception.
We were made for that loving relationship. According to the Bible love should be our number one priority in building strong relationships. Here are 3 reason I can think of.
1. Love is your number one priority in building strong relationship because it is life’s HIGHEST VALUE.
One of the most compelling command we can read about relationships is found in these words,
“You must love the Lord with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your might, and with all of your strength… and the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39
Now, isn’t that awesome!
It says that, if we want to truly build strong relationships in whatever level or status in our lives, we must learn to love. Love is the highest value of all according to this verses from the Bible.
We may put more value in money, but after all of that we will end up with nothing. We may put more value in acquiring things, but in the end, we will know it isn’t enough.
2.Love is your number one priority in building strong relationship because it is life’s PRIMARY OBJECTIVE.
According to the above, words without love are nothing! No matter what I say if my intention is devoid of love it is nothing. I will just end up sounding stupid and detach.
Last night I was invited to sign a petition to stop cyber bullying. particularly in response to what happened that led Amanda Todd to commit suicide. I watch the video that she put on youtube. And all I can say is this,
All she was looking was a little love. And she didn’t find it in the people that she trusted. She was alone and felt unlove and unwanted.
That is a very sad story. Amanda Todd is only one person, there are millions out there that are in the same boat as Amanda at this very moment. Not that they will commit suicide tonight. But in varying degree, they feel empty and hollow. People you may know and near to you.
When love is absent, we feel hollow inside.
When the actions of people lacks the objective to love. All we see is people trying to get as much as they can from the other. And when there is nothing more to get, the other person becomes useless to them.
This is a very harsh reality permeating in our societies today. People doesn’t want to love others.
3. Love is your number one priority in building strong relationship because it is life’s GREATEST POWER.
How often have we heard of stories of people sacrificing and going to great length for the one they love. Exerting such power they couldn’t imagine they have inside of them. And we end up feeling good about ourselves just by hearing those stories, why is that?
Because deep inside of us there is that same capability to love. If you are looking for a good motivation to do so something, start by approaching people and things in a loving way.
Why do I blog? That is because I want to help other people see the better side of relationships. That we cannot be victims of missteps all the time. That we can build stronger relationships
Why do I blog? Because people need to know someone does care about their relationships to be stronger, and it can be done. I have done it in mine, you can do it in yours too!
Listen, if you are looking for reasons why you want to build Strong Relationships, let your reason be LOVE.
