And no, this is not a joke on the Adele song. ;)
I just simply wanted to tell you all hi on this beautiful day.
And I wanted to share with you all one of my thoughts.
Random and weird as always ;b
Its about how much we think of others. Or how much love we show to others even in our thoughts.
Or how many others.
For some of us we like to keep our friend list short.
Why is this?
Because loving others can take a lot of energy. Time. And self-sacrifice. All that. :/
Today I was thinking, "What if someone I didn't know well (by choice) died today." I wasnt thinking of any specific person, by the way.
And if I went to their funeral along with others that also hadn't known this person very well. I bet all of us would find something to at least think about this person. In fact our brains would probably be churning, searching for all memories invloving this person.
Suppose they didn't die.
would we do the same? Or continue not giving them any thought? Or even more importanly, showing that person any love?
I mean, I know we've probably all had similar thoughts, but really, how many of us actually apply them? How many of us actually try to be friends to people that come into our life on a regular basis, yet don't quite make our friend list because of one thing of another?
Isn't it sad how some individuals don't make it into our mind as being worthy of us?
How pathetic... we, each of us, such an unworthy person, yet we still put ourselves above certain people.
We may not actually dislike them.
But something about them... They just aren't our type.
This isn't right.
What part of the Bible says "Love all, but you don't have to show them that you love them."?
And so, again, I want to do better. I want to be a friend to whoever is put in my path. Certain people will be a challenge, yes. But they still deserve kindness shown to them.
And now that I've got this thought out... will I actually be a friend to all? With Yahweh's help, I hope so! What about you?
