“Make love for humanity your religion. It pleases God” ~Bengraphix
Someone taught me that the biggest party he could ever throw on his birthday is to go to a hospital with his friends and donate blood to patients who are in its need without any charge. How sweet!
On that note, I wonder what could be more Christian and Muslim than love. The biblical story of the Good Samaritan tells it all. Love! The greatest creed! The greatest religion! The greatest belief!
Paganism, atheism, Islamism, Christianity etc can all stay together and grow in one society without anyone of them killing the other, without one preaching against the other, without one shouting Holy Ghost fire against the other if they all practice the one true religion of love and humanity.
The only way any of them can win others to become part of them is on the authenticity and level of true love they practice. Our love for supreme beings can only be made manifest in man. Man is the God you see.
Imagine a world where love leads, just imagine how serene, how peaceful, how less painful it would be. You turn in a little act of kindness and give a hopeless soul hope, a dying soul can live again and a lonely soul can experience love.
Love is the greatest, an essential part of our social existence, it doesn’t cost much to show love. All it takes is the mindset that a little act of love can change everything.
If I donate blood to the sick, twice or once a year, I have paid a due to humanity, a price only me would reap its prize. If I help a needy, I have crested my name at the walls of good deeds. If I take it gently with my employees, I have made an impact in work life. If I lead my followers with love, I have taught others the highest leadership virtue and have made an impact.
What can love not conquer? Hate? Angst? Wickedness? Jealousy? Evil? Blood thirst? Nuisance? Stealing? Death? Loneliness? Vengefulness? Broken heart? Trickery? Cheat? Mischief? Selfishness? Absolutely nothing!
To show love, we have to be charitable with our hearts, our time, our strengths, our smiles and laughter, our knowledge, our attention, our words, our truthfulness.
Money is not all you need to be charitable. A good heart is. If you set out to do good to your neighbours, your friends, family, community, nation and the world, you are the true Champion and believer!
Let love lead!
