"What Kind of Love brings you true happpiness?"

Published on 7/3/2018
For additional information  Click Here

Hello Everyday Readers,

 

 

Never before have there been so many who

have come to love God and their fellow man.

The inspired scriptures also foretold that in

our day,a misdirected kind of love

Characterized by selfishness would be shown

by people who are alienated from God

2 Tim.3:1-4 says in the last days....men will

be lovers of themselves,lovers of money,....

lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God. "

He gave the warning to turn away from those

whose love is misdirected,however,we cannot

avoid all contact with such people so we strive

to turn our life around to please God,it will

help us evaluate and refine the love that we

should show,the kind of love that brings true

satisfaction and happiness.

Is it wrong for us to love ourselves?No,it is

normal,even necessary,to have a healthy love

if self.But Jesus said: "You must love your

neighbor as yourself." if we do not love 

ourselves,we cannot live our neighbors.

The love of self mentioned at 2 Timothy 3:2

is not a normal,healthy love. It is a distorted,

selfish love,people who love themselves 

excessively think more of themselves than

it is necessary for them to think. They care

little about others,when things go wrong,

they tend to blame others rather than

accept responsibility,that love of self is 

at the top of the list of negative qualities

that would be prevalent during the last days

cause the other qualities result from it unlike

those who are lovers of themselves and who

are interested only in receiving.

People who love God produce a much different

kind of fruitage. Which the bible associates

godly love with joy,peace,patience,kindness,

goodness,faith,mildness,and self-control.

Riches in heaven or Riches on earth?

People would be lovers of money,a man took

out his wallet,removed some paper money,

held it up and proudly said, "This is my god!"

the world is full of people who love money

and the things that it can buy, such people will

always want more money,and striving to amass

it,they will bring in themselves "many pains"

Of course,We all need money but can a 

person be truly happy if he has only enough

for basic needs? Those who love money

cannot please God. "No one can slave for two

masters; for either he will hate the one and

love the other, or he will stick to one and

despise the other.You cannot slave for God

and for Riches. "

Seeking God or Seeking Pleasure?

many people today are lovers of pleasure.

just as there is nothing wrong with healthy,

reasonable view of self and money,there is

nothing wrong with a balanced view of 

Pleasures the verse does not say that people

would love pleasure more than God,implying

that they would have some love for him,it says

'rather than God.'this verse does not mean that

they also love God to some extent,it means

that they do not love God at all. The phrase

"lovers of pleasure" aptly describes those who

are"carried away by pleasure of this life.

Jesus did not immerse himself in a life of 

pleasure,he put his father first and

expended himself tirelessly on behalf of others,

so that many might live,he willingly endured

a painful death on a stake.if we truly love God,

we will be careful to avoid not only the things

we know will deplease him but also the things 

we merely suspect may deplease him.

The way of true happiness we know the earth

is filled with people who have an inordinate

love of self,money,and pleasure,they are people

who are earger for what they can get,people

who place their own wishes at the center of their

life,such people can never be truly happy.

The love of God flourishes among God's

people and true and lasting joy comes from doing

The will of God,from knowing that we are

pleasing the supreme one,and those who love

God will be joyful forever!

 

Thank You

Your Associate,

MCA Shermone Johnson

Hope you all enjoy the read!

 

P.S. God Is Love that's where the true happiness

come from.
