#10 Love Is The Greatest

Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

Mother Theresa

 

Personally i believe that love is the greatest virtue one can possess. Looking around the world today, everything that’s happening; I can’t help but wonder if everyone loved, what would happen!? There has been conferences, discussions, meetings all with the aim of uniting families, people, nations, settling conflicts but still it seems as though nothing is changing. We has hoped, we have talked but the one thing that is left to be applied is love.

There seems to be a general misconception that love is something that’s reserved for certain people or occasions but that’s not true at all. Everyone qualifies to be loved, to be cared for, to be respected, to be heard. Love does not discriminate. Love does not get tired of  loving. Love is manifested in the small things; to love someone you don’t need to shower them with gifts and money or lots of material possessions, sometimes all that’s needed is a smile, a hug, a shoulder to cry on, lending a listen ear, a helping hand, an advice, helping an elderly person cross the road, tying the shoes of a child, calling someone just to say hello and ask how they’re doing, trying to understanding what the other person is feeling or going through and not immediately judge them and so many other ways to show love. They’re many people who can do the big things but very few will do the small things.

You don’t have to love the whole word, start by showing love your neighbor; that person standing next to you irrespective of their color, position, opinion, vices; just choose to show someone love today just because they’re a human being just like you.

I believe that what the world needs is not more weapons, conferences, discussions, inventions, cars or houses but for every person to be their neighbor’s keeper. To show love and acceptance.

Imagine how great our countries, nations, families, schools, communities would be if everyone loved each other and sought not only their own benefit but also the benefit of their neighbor. Love is the Highway to ‘ A Higher Life’
