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!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
