An Eye for an Eye

I do not believe in repaying an offence with an offence, even, when I know I am deliberately targeted unjustifiably. Reacting to an attack credits the offender. What about repaying evil with good, knowing that no good deed is unrewarded.

Love whether from God to man or man to man is a positive experience we must not deny ourselves. Love is often unmerited or undeserving, and, it is psychologically rewarding to those involved.

Love for one another is not just a feeling as most people would rather think, it is an ideology, a principle and above all a way of life. Love covers a multitude of sins and conquers all.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Absolutely nobody, will see and appreciate the beauty of nature – the water falls, blossoming flowers, beautiful creatures, our dearest family members and the list goes on and on and on.

Seriously, if we keep reacting to negative things people say or do, instead of taking time to think things through and respond positively, we will miss experiencing the supernatural powers that dwells in our humanity. To err is human, but, to forgive is divine.

When I refuse to be distracted by an offender, I get progressively stronger and better to face life’s challenges.

Let’s unburden ourselves and soar like an eagle.

Marriage

In my usual way of keeping it simple, let’s look at marriage.

First Step - Good Start

Marriage is primarily a relationship between two people, though, its possible extensiveness extensions in human, financial and other forms, makes it a special relationship with huge expectations.

Characteristics of marriage:

The foundation of a potentially successful marriage begins with shared interests and values. Two can not walk together except they agree. Moving in opposite directions never takes a couple anywhere.  (1)

Oneness  – Two become one, in unity of purpose.

Acceptance – Couples eventually know their strengths and weaknesses, yet  embrace these while working together to improve each other. Like the first couple,  Adam and Eve, they saw they were naked, but, were not ashamed( Genesis 2:24&25). I need to add that, some couples use each other’s weakness to control, undermine or demean the other, this is principally the devil’s duty and not one for married partners, except of course they are in the relationship for some other reasons.

Respect – Showing consideration and treating each other with esteem is very necessary in any relationship, more so in marriage. It does not depend on the other person in any way, no matter what the other party is , does, says or contribute to the relationship, we ought to respect him or her.

However, trust unlike other attributes of a “good” relationship is earned.  It is a product of experience in marriage. Therefore, it is the duty of each person to relate in a manner that commands the trust of the other, through truthful and righteous conducts of our daily affairs – work, speech, behaviour and so on.

Marital duties are directly or indirectly defined in most culture, religion and in our human consciousness. Fortunately, money, affluence and societal status  are often not essential element of a good marriage. (2)

Marriage is a commitment, requiring trust and mutual respect to forge through the challenges that so often confront it.

Sex, family, gifts, good health, companionship, longevity, happiness, good financial state and spiritual progress are products of working together or like-mindedness in marriage. These and other positive out-comes can only be achieved and maintained through hard work.

Nothing should be taken for granted in marriage. To get the best of it, you sacrifice the most. (3) . Be unassuming, play your part to the best of your ability. Remove malice, revenge,competitiveness, anger and pray without ceasing. Somehow, someday, you will have “good” success.

My 12-Year-Old Niece Can Do Your Job: The Need for Mutual Respect (via The DMT Idea Board)

This is to all hard-working people out there, no matter your line of vocation, calling or profession.

My 12-Year-Old Niece Can Do Your Job: The Need for Mutual Respect It’s a funny thing being a graphic designer… or a photographer, or a retail manager, or a plumber, or a real estate agent, or just about any professional. The majority of humanity assumes that what you do isn’t really all that difficult. In the course of business, I’ve had several conversations that went something like this: THEM: “So, what business are you in?” ME: “I operate a successful graphic design firm.” THEM: “No kidding.
