More-Letter-Words

Is it the warm, kind feeling, the fondness or affectionate and tender devotion people mean when the use the four-letter-wordLove“?

We can see a mother’s love for her children; a love of learning or a love of adventure.

The fondness, charity or the affection of the mind caused by that which delights is with the devoted attachment to somebody of this universe is something which has become more rarely. “Love” seems to have become a word which is subtle as a breeze or misty as the damp of the water kettle, taking long to come up but quick to disappear.

For some the word “Love” has gotten a meaning of a sort of possession often more to do with “owning” something or someone, or only to be co-notated with sexual desires and not so much with generosity and caring. Though love has everything to do with softness and magnanimity. Love is bringing an opening to the greatness of the soul, that quality of mind which raises a person above all that is mean or unjust. It is the attitude which a human has to create or to work on of which the Bible, the Word of God, has spend so many words on. It is the capability to make yourself noble and humble. Not wanting to hurt or to bring any damage to an other person. Being meek of heart wanting to get the best for the other person and willing to help him or her to become even better, without expecting something in return. It is the willingness to become submissive to another person.

Today several people would find that week or not “cool”. they consider that power is what we should get, and that we should take on an attitude by using other four-letter-words.

“Love” is about avoiding the most damaging one letter word: “I”. While today the world seems to be centred around the “I” and “me” of many persons who would like to find themselves placed on the first and highest step. Wanting to be the most important has been from long time. That is nothing new and Jesus also had to give some lessons about pride and knowing their place, to the apostles. God also had to learn Jonah that he should have not to think so much about himself nor on what he would think the most appropriate.

Jesus had a lot of work to let the people understand that they had to kill the most poisonous three-letter word:  “Ego” and should try to replace it with the better two-letter-word: “we”. He warned his listeners that they should be “eager” to “learn” and “humble” enough to present themselves to the world and to God in all “honesty”. He encountered also many people who looked at the popularity and power Jesus got and tried to let them understand their questioning and false attitude of doing like they wanted to know more was fed by the most nefarious eight-letter word: “Jealousy” of which any person should  “distance” this, to be able to “acquire” the most powerful nine-letter word: “Knowledge” and to get some more “Wisdom” (the Five-letter-word to go for).

Only by having love for the environment, plants, animals and people around them, would humans be able to grow in their love and be able to feel themselves save (a necessary four-letter-word),  building up the five-letter-word  “Trust” to double it to the most essential ten-letter word: “Confidence”.

Jesus asked about his reasons why he talked to a sinning women who had to stoned wrote in sand, whit the love when someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.

The Ghost who has the most powerful Love had given everything to His Creation and is still willing to give so much we would not be able to carry it all. He also gave His only begotten son who He dearly loved and came here on earth to preach this undeserved Love. He showed us how we also got to come to this powerful force in life which can be made able to grow by the greatest asset: Faith.

But today most people do not see the “Opening Balance!” they got at birth, and look only to see their bank-account filled with as much as possible. Because of the wrongly placed love they do not see that the “Heart” is our “Current Asset” and our “Soul” our “Fixed Asset“. Their thinking got disfigured, though the “Brain” is our “Fixed Deposit”.

They should get to see that Knowledge is our Investment and Love is our Dividend.

Lots of people lost respect to others and therefore lost also respect for themselves falling in the trap of the ugliest personality trait: “selfishness”. Others have become competitors. They are looked at as rivalries. this world has learned that everybody has to compete with each other, instead of helping each other to grow together and to reach the same goal.

In the attitude of men we can see the big difference between humans and God. One of the basic differences between God and humans is, God gives, gives and forgives. But the human gets, gets, gets and forgets….& still not Happy (again a five-letter word to be desired)? It is desirable that we would all wish each-other happiness.

But today it looks like nobody likes it that others have more happiness than them. Lots of people hate it when others can have “more” (a four-letter word we should not place in the wrong context). Resentment, spite or even rancour are growing diseases, which make people not satisfied with themselves and with those around them. They think that when the can be brutal that they shall mean something more. Vile words and savage actions have to bring them some standing. But the appearance or prestige may not always be what they had in ambition.

Not many keep any curses that they want to say within the inner dialogue in their head. Lots of people do not see any harm or do not condone cursing. Often we hear children shouting ” I want”, “I don’t”, “I can’t” and then we can wonder if they have learned to love to aim for and to look for what is behind and beyond. then we hear their parents use four-letter-words which sometimes gets us to get red ears but do not anything to those rolling and crying kids on the flour in the supermarket.

We can notice that The Y generation got in conflict with itself and that we should consider more the Vile language and behaviour plus little secrets. The world should get to know that there are Alternative four letter words which are much, much better to use more frequently than all the popular words which sometimes have become meaningless or not adding anything to the phrase. So why using those ugly words when they do not ad anything positive to the thought?

Some years ago it was very popular to take Gods name in vain. But today nobody looks strange when somebody uses the title of God to underline his negative thoughts. Also the name of Jesus Christ is often been used in vain, but that has also just become a nothing saying few words. “hell” and  “dam” do not seem to mean anything nowadays. But is it really so that nobody feels hurt any more when somebody say “damn you”. Though he perhaps may not want the person to be really be damned. Because  a lot of people do not believe in eternal punishment the curse or swear at them does not do anything. But surely such an interjection expressing annoyance, disgust or impatience, shows that no value is given to the other one and that there is not much place for any sort of love or kindness.

To utter imprecations, or to call down evil on somebody can’t be called an act of love.

Swear-words may perhaps not be considered bad language, but we should all be aware that it should not be appropriate to use such language.

In case we love somebody we do not use bad words against him or her. And we should take in mind that the Word of God tells us:

“And you shall love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Mitsrayim. ” (Deuteronomy 10:19 The Scriptures 1998+)
“‘Do not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the children of your people. And you shall love your neighbour as yourself. I am יהוה {Jehovah}. ” (Leviticus 19:18 The Scriptures 1998+)

“to love  יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which  יהוה {Jehovah} swore to your fathers, to Abto Yitshand to Yato give them.”  (Deuteronomy 30:20 The Scriptures 1998+) means we should follow up the words of God to treat others with respect and not to use bad or wrong words against them.
“Then she said to him, “How do you say, ‘I love you,’ when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me these three times, and have not made known to me where your great strength lies.” ” (Judges 16:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

We should remember: “by loving those who hate you, and by hating those who love you. For you have made it clear today that you have neither commanders nor servants, for today I know that if Abhad lived and all of us had died today, then it would be right in your eyes. ” (2 Samuel 19:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Owe no one any matter except to love one another, for he who loves another has filled the Torah. For this, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other command, is summed up in this word, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” Love does no evil to a neighbour. Therefore, love is completion of the Torah. ” (Romans 13:8-10 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Therefore, as chosen ones of Elohim, set-apart and beloved, put on compassion, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, patience, bearing with one another, and forgiving each other if anyone has a complaint against another, indeed, as Messiah forgave you so also should you. But above all these put on love, which is a bond of the perfection. ” (Colossians 3:12-14 The Scriptures 1998+)
“And above all have fervent love for one another, because love covers a great number of sins. ” (1 Peter 4:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

Many people use not appropriate more-letter-words because they are afraid they would not be counted for their sayings. they want to use fortifying language because they are afraid they shall not be taken into account for what they have to say. In love is no fear, so in case they would accept the others and love them, they should not fear their words would not have the bearing which they deserve.  Impulses have their origin in ourselves and shall show to others how we are inside. As a Christian we should have the right heart and the right attitude to honour Christ and His Father. We should work on ourselves to make us perfect in love. Putting away the wrong more-letterwords is on action we do have to undertake as soon as we want to follow Christ Jesus. In him we should become more perfect in love.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear holds punishment, and he who fears has not been made perfect in love. ” (1 John 4:18 The Scriptures 1998+)

We may love whatever gives us pleasure and delight, whether animal or intellectual; and if our hearts are right, we love God above all things, as the sum of all excellence and all the attributes which can communicate happiness to intelligent beings. In other words, the Christian loves God with the love of complacency in his attributes, the love of benevolence towards the interest of his kingdom, and the love of gratitude for favours received. Opposed to hatred our words and actions should show an affection of the mind excited by beauty and worth of any kind, or by the qualities of an object which communicate pleasure, sensual or intellectual. Foul language does not fit into that picture.

    a 4 letter word which we all love to avoid because of that fear… of failure… of confrontation… of rejection…of the truth. We all do have some form of fear whether it is just one or several.

    we fail to attempt to even try and by giving in to our fear often complete and total happiness is missed. Too often do we throw in the towel because we fear consequences and pre-meditated outcomes, failure failure failure is a huge fear of many, rejection rejection rejection is another. But if we live in fear all of our lives do we ever live fully? Can true happiness be totally achieved?

    He and I have become closer friends lately, and I believe there is some mutual attraction. I’m OK with that – I fall in the camp of “It’s OK to be a little flirty and have crushes sometimes but I would never consider cheating on my boyfriend,” but I wonder if saying “I love you,” like this is crossing a boundary.

    If you hurt someone with what you perceive to be their and your best interests in mind, while simultaneously knowing that what you are doing will hurt that person, is it any different than actively trying to hurt the person. Does duration and occurrence play a role? If I don’t mean to hurt you, but know I am and will for 4 years is it less bad than a single act of active hurtfulness? Is it possible to want to hurt someone you love in an extreme moment but still love and care for that person? Is it possible to call that love?
  • There’s Nothing Like a Man’s Pen (andshelaughs.wordpress.com)
    What is it about the written word, on real paper, penned by the hand of someone dear that still holds us spellbound? Perhaps just that. Instead of digital flashes passing through space, the energy of the person is much more palpable, near and tactile when we hold the paper that they held, when we hold the envelope that they sealed or when we smudge the ink that they penned. A printed page is ever so much more cuddly and ready when you can’t sleep and want to re-read a love letter or giggly note from a gal-pal.
    +
    Today the reaction is often instant. You know they got the digital message almost as soon as you hit send. In the good old days of snail mail, there was the agony and ecstasy of hope, dread, and wonderful expectation. Now we experience those emotions in a nano-second. I prefer a well thought-out hand-written letter for the good stuff, as do the other gentle ladies out there.
  • On Love: What I learned (teejowee.com)
    There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.
