In the everyday parlance the title of the posting is called and referred to as HELP as in would you and can you consider helping me? Who got to where they are without the help of another? You didn't create nor did you birth yourself. Start with this premise and the subject matter has no end to it!
WHY LEND SOMEONE YOUR LIFE?
You can rightfully believe that "they" or others... want and need assistance from you but in most cases won't say it. Do we really want people to beg, plead and give away their sense of worth over a helping hand? Shame on us if we do. Beware of becoming insensitive to this matter for your sake
A HARD HEART
No one is born with a hard heart. It is acquired as you go I am sorry to say for those that are inflicted. I mean this literally. When you turn your back on someone in need or ignore them or worse yet add to their woe, the Law of the Universe kicks in... not on them but on you!
You start to become indifferent. Your distancing of the instance works both ways. An addiction of a sort, one that needs constant feeding is activated. The more wrong you do the easier it is to do it. Here is where the famous & used correctly saying of: God help you literally means what it says.
GOOD WOLF-BAD WOLF
The Native indians explained it this way using nature & simplicity. They propose there are two wolves that live within a person. Both need to be fed & the one that eats the most grows stronger & active. Warriors in battle know this & seek the balance so they may have peace & rest as needed
THE MAGIC OF SERVING
When you help someone out of your drive that is coming from your heart, a magnificent event takes place FOR YOU and then for the other. You are instantly filled with a deep and righteous satisfaction that is beyong purchase and given freely to those who give freely....of themselves!
YOUR MEASURE IS THE STANDARD THAT WILL BE USED ON YOU
If in the flurry of the moment, you dispence your belief for the good or not so good, it then becomes the same standard to be used on you. Amazing this dynamic. That is what is so shocking i.e. when your commeuppance visits! You now are in those mocassins walking the walk of misery
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
Your thoughts are not a reliable consistent source of truth but used at times to deliver truth. It is not who you say you are but who others say you are. The Christ when he visited, expressed this so well and with the highest confidence saying why ask me? Go ask those I have spoken to
IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT A HELPING HAND?
It would not exist. Pause here. It is impossible for mankind to subsist without help whether it be from God, nature, animals, plants, insects and other humans. The symbiotic relationships that interweave in their complexities require one another to do so. One can feed or starve the other
HOW HARD IS THIS?
That depends on the degree of sacrifice involved. The assistance I am speaking of is a natural flow that presents itself according to your circumstances, abilities and capabilites in the moment. If it becomes a burden, perhaps you went outside the allotted boundaries of the testing or situation.
THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL
Parents give and the receivers (the children) are not cognizant of the goings on. Military service comes with the expressed and implied knowledge that your life may be required in its fullness. The Christ exemplified, demonstrated and answered this call, once and for all plus forever giving His life so you may have access once again to abundant life and not just existence. The standards have been set
Now for your part.....
