I’ve seen a good number of people going to churhes,mosques etcetera…in practise of their respective religions.Does these religions teaches good or bad? I believe,a good majority are based on good & the truth.but why is it that our world continues to suffer from fatal wickedness,evil,unlawfulness & injustice even in the presence of all these religions & its so-called “religious people? Now,what’s the essence of being religious when it does not even reflects on a person’s life,the kind they lead? Or has it all become “HYPOCRISY???
The Bible has this to say:
“DO ANY OF YOU THINK YOU ARE RELIGIOUS?IF YOU DO NOT CONTROL YOUR TONGUE,YOUR RELIGION IS WORTHLESS & YOU DECEIVE YOURSELVES.WHAT GOD THE FATHER CONSIDERS TO BE PURE & GENUINE RELIGION IS THIS: TO TAKE CARE OF ORPHANS & WIDOWS IN THEIR SUFFERING & TO KEEP ONESELF FROM BEING CORRUPTED BY THE WORLD”
scripture quotation is from the Good News Bible.
It takes *love*trust*courage* & *faith* for a relationship to being successful and achieve success.
First,lets talk about the quality,called love.Generally,it can simply be defined as a feeling of tender affection for somebody or something.Love as it is,has become the base on which so many relationships are created today.Oftentimes,love is very commonly used and the fact that it has suffered from precarious interpretations can not be over-emphasized.So therefore,it is imperative that one knows what love is all about, like its characteristics,features and possibly attributes.The Bible speaks so much too about love as it is related even to our relational life.The Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians stands as a well founded example;
“Love is patient and kind;it is not jealous or conceited or proud ;love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable;love does not keep a record of wrongs;love is not happy with evil,but is happy with the truth.Love never gives up;and its faith,hope,and patience never fail” 1st Corinthians 13 versus 4-7 (passage according to the GOOD NEWS BIBLE)
It is unavoidably necessary for one to know what kind of love a prospective partner is bringing to base before they should venture into a relationship.For instance a romantic love,possibly a sexually motivated relationship is likely to be short- lived,because after a partner must have satisfied his or her sexual need,they may call it quit,since they has no other reason to stay or continue with such relationship and as it used to be,if there were no prior agreement by both parties to take such action,it could be a case of one winning and the other losing;and this usually causes pain to the one,who has lose.
Relationships that succeeds the most are those based on unconditional love.This kind of love is natural and has no material conditions.people that are involved experience boundless happiness,peace and joy in their relational life.They also tend to meet each other’s needs in every aspect.Here,love is regarded as life and there is great respect,care and appreciation for each other.In unconditional love,love is not practised selfishly but rather selflessly.
Does your partner loves you as he or she does for themselves?Do they have the willingness and the tendency to treat you as they will like to be treated? I think those are some of the questions you need to ask yourself and find out about.when you’re done with your findings and it happens to be that the answers to those questions is *yes*then,be rest assured that *true love* is certainly in place.
Having known that,then you should ensure to create time to talk extensively and effectively about *trust* see to it,that you and your partner are able to agree on trustworthiness.If you truly love your partner,you need to show them that you really love, care and have the need for them as much and as well as they are committed and loyal to you and the relationship.You and your partner really need to trust,be honest and being truthful to each other.most importantly,know and have a sincere agreement as to what extent you both could go on trust,so as to prevent fears and doubts.Your partner would not be likely to betray your trust;providing they are worthy of it;as well as they truly love and care for you.
“Remember that you can not always trust the person you love but you can always love the person you trust”
Having perfected love and trust,courage and faith should be strongly,consistently and well utilized.
