3/49 Examine The Beauty of Your Love

Wednesday

The Godly character of Beauty’s attributes: compassionate, harmonious with fellow humans, spiritually balanced by biblical truths (not like a measurement in strength, more like an anchor that grounds you).

Compassionate love has the power to restore peace, hope, or human dignity.

Love without compassion has an appearance of inconsideration, selfishness, and behaviors that are self seeking.

Harmonious love balances the many expressions love can display, while keeping it grounded to a solid, truthful foundation.

Compassion grows love, love grows compassion.

Examine your compassionate love:

What prevents me from helping others? Am I selective with who I help? Is my benevolence bias?

Challenge yourself to express compassion in your love towards humanity today.

Biblical application: Naomi and Ruth’s beautiful love for each other.

But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.
(Ruth 1:16-18 ESV)

  1. I really enjoyed this post, Wendy. I’m reminded of the lyrics to Signs by Tesla where the sign says come on in kneel down & pray then they passed the plate but he didn’t have a penny to pay. Do we, as a society, accept & love the poorest, stinkiest, less educated among us? Compassion seems to be in short supply for certain members of society and that makes me extremely sad.
