Imposters, fakers, and the real deal-ers

insights Joan Winifred trust

Is it…
friends in enemies’ clothing??
or
enemies in friends’ clothing??

No/non-descript clothing(s)?… no friends/no enemies…hmmm

Oh, and the real-deal-ers…me:  just a wearer of compassion fashion… always in style…and among any so-called friends and any so-called enemies.

(My trust is earned.)

Joan Winifred justice love motivation trust Truth

Peaceful Greetings Reader:)… please see super-agape…for context…

The Bible explains that genuine love is shown, “not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.” (1 John 3:18) Does this mean that we cannot express love through our speech? Not at all! (1 Thess. 4:18) Rather, it means that our love must not be limited to words, especially when the circumstances call for action. For example, when a fellow […]lacks the basic necessities of life, he needs more than our good wishes. (Jas. 2:15, 16)

The apostle John wrote that we must love “in deed and truth.” Thus, our love must be “without hypocrisy,” or “free from hypocrisy.”(Rom. 12:9; 2 Cor. 6:6) This means that we cannot show genuine love while pretending to be something that we are not, as if we were wearing a mask. We might wonder, ‘Is there such a thing as love with hypocrisy?’ Not really. This would not be love at all but a worthless imitation. [excerpted: Love..in Deed and Truth w 2017]

Does selfishness come easy? Sure!… but, we, humans, have the capacity to cultivate and learn love… agape every day.

Is agape (aka unselfish/pure motive) my prompt?? Does the highest form of love… agape… result in the highest happiness or the greatest good for others and ourselves??

“We should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.”—1 John 3:18.

JEHOVAH {True God of Bible, True God of Compassion aka Yahweh} is the Source of love. (1 John 4:7) The highest form of love is based on right principles. In the Bible, this type of love is described by the Greek word a·gaʹpe. This love can include affection and warm feelings for someone, but it involves more than simply feelings. It is shown by unselfish actions for the benefit of others. It is love that motivates us to do good things for others. This kind of love gives us joy and meaning in life.

A PurposeFULL…Life

Breathing-Fragile-Life compassion God happiness insights Joan Winifred peace trust Truth

Psychiatrist Viktor E. Frankl noted: “Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.” The Scriptures long ago showed that pursuing riches and pleasures without having a deeper purpose in life is empty and unsatisfying. “A mere lover of silver will not be satisfied with silver, neither any lover of wealth with income. This too is vanity.” (Ecclesiastes 5:10 [5:9, TNK]) The affluent may seem to enjoy a life of ease and pleasure-seeking, but “even in laughter the heart may be in pain.”—Proverbs 14:13.

“Send out your light and your truth. May these themselves lead me.”—PSALM 43:3.

How do we even know that there is a Creator?

Professor George Zinsmeister, formerly of the University of Massachusetts in the United States, believes in God and answers this question in a single word—entropy. He is referring to what scientists term “the second law of thermodynamics.” This law implies something that we all observe. An orderly system, such as a house, cannot come into existence on its own. Yet, our universe consists of countless examples of highly ordered physical and biological systems. All of this is evidence that points to an unimaginably intelligent and powerful Creator.

Why did God create us?

Creation was an expression of God’s love. As a loving Father, he wants us to enjoy life and to find pleasure in all the good things he has created for us.—Psalm 92:4 [92:5, TNK].

What does it mean that God created us “in his image”?—Genesis 1:26, 27.

God created us with a measure of his own qualities, including the ability to love, to be wise, to be just, and to be creative. He also gave us freedom of choice. When we choose to reflect his qualities, we make him happy. (Proverbs 23:15  “My son, if your heart becomes wise, Then my own heart will rejoice.”) As does any parent, God desires to have intelligent, reasoning children with whom he can communicate and enjoy a meaningful relationship.

What could we expect our Creator to do for us?

  • “You will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”—JEREMIAH 29:12.

    “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness. . . . For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I myself will help you.’”—ISAIAH 41:10, 13. [excerpted readings: What do We Need to be Happy? section 3 Who Can Give Us Reliable Guidance?]
