The gospel and the article I just read are seemingly an affirmation to my prayer on the 13th of March.
The Gospel reminds us to DO GOOD. “For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”Luke 6:36-3836 Jesus said to his disciples: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. 37 Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. 38 Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”
Jesus, whom I referred to as my imaginary Kuya when I was little, loves me so much and it’s all that matter. So…
I will STOP longing for the love, care and attention from the people who never dare to give even a bit of it.I will STOP looking for their presence. Though, I can see them but I cannot feel them.I will STOP questioning my worth. For God, I am worthy and it’s unquestionable.I will STOP believing the lies of their thoughts and words. It does not define me.
But, just like what my mother told me, I will continue to be loving, kind and DO good all the time. I will praise and thank God for the many blessings. I will not stop praying that God will give miracles and bring all of us together in His loving arms. I will not stop giving, forgiving and asking for forgiveness for I, too am not perfect. Above all, I will not stop telling them what is right “even if it leads me to further misery.” They will hate me, cast stones of bad words and then ignore me.
Giving judgment is okay if you based on the TRUTH.You become judgmental if you believe on the lies of your thoughts, you listen to the sound of the negative force dictating you to be sad, angry and do wrong against the other person, based your OPINION on what you see and hear and not confirming the truth. You are not condemning someone if you’re just giving “a more positive prescription for a happy and fulfilled life.” You’re condemning them by your cursing words… that they may have a miserable life, even worst than you.
What will you feel when you’ve been bad but still you’re receiving blessings? You’re blessed for someone is praying for you to have it, doing good for you and loving you despite of how unloving you are. Not because you deserve it, but because THEY CHOOSE TO BE GOOD.
