Wanna spread EAFLU? Part VI

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7 : 12

Good morning, friends. Let us read about the last letter ‘U’ today. It’s nothing but ‘Understand.’ The following is narrated by someone on Emotional Intelligence.

One day I was trying to get a defective product replaced before I started a trip overseas. I made several phone calls and tried to explain the situation several times to several different people. I kept getting passed around from one department to another. People kept debating with me and telling me what the company policies were without listening to me. No one seemed to understand or care that it was important to me that the product be replaced before I left for my trip. I was feeling more and more frustrated, even exasperated. Finally I found someone who understood what I was trying to say and what I needed. I could literally feel the tension releasing from my body. I thought to myself," Finally. Someone who understands!" I realized then how important understanding was.

Now you could have realized how understanding is needed. In any argues, you can hear people saying, “Please try to understand me.” That is when the people explicitly tell others that they have to be understood. In judicial courts, we see the accused getting chances to explain his situation that caused him to go wring. The pathetic situation with us is many times, we always stay at a point where we leave no place for others to explain things to us and so we don’t spend our times in understanding them. In short, we always judge others even before we know the truth. Remember if you judge someone, you can never understand them. While the accused gets a chance to explain him, why don’t you give a few more chances to your friends, your family members and beloveds?

My grandfather and my grandmother love me so much. In fact when I was young almost all my vacations were spent in their home. No other dares to stay there as it’s a village, but I loved to stay there and serve them. I always expected when my vacation would start to go there. One incident happened when I was doing my Engineering and that broke the relationship. They told some statements against my father (their son-in-law) to defend their son. I was not able to forgive them. But as years passed by, I forgot what they did to us, instead remembered how much they loved me before. As they are getting older, they now don’t remember what happened exactly. But one thing they know for sure that we’re here and we would go and meet them when we get time.

‘F’orgiveness and ‘U’nderstand go hand in hand. Do you want someone to explain themselves to understand them? Friends, not always you’ll get a chance to hear them asking for forgiveness. Give up your ego. Just try to understand people even if they don’t confess things to you.

The world is craving for love. If you’re lacking in any of these five, Encouragement, Appreciation, Forgiveness, Listening and Understanding, just workout something to possess them. I’ll show you a shortcut to it. You can win the whole world by practicing what the Holy Bible says. I’m able to feel that the entire ‘Be attitude’, in other words ‘Sermon on the mount’ Matthew 5, 6 and 7 collectively speaks about all these qualities. Kindly take some time to read these three chapters, by which you can get a good idea on how to possess them all and to inherit Eternal Kingdom.

May God bless you all!

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
