A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Love versus Obligation

4 Comments


A house is a house is a house until love comes through the door , that is. And love intuitively goes around sprinkling that special extra that transforms a house into a very special home for very special people: your family.

Money , of course , can build a charming house , but only love can furnish it with a feeling of home.

Duty can pack an adequate sack lunch , but love may decide to tuck a little love note inside.

Money can provide a television set , but love controls it and cares enough to say no and take the guff that comes with it.

Obligation sends the children to bed on time , but love tucks the covers in around their necks and passes out kisses and hugs (even to teenagers ! ).

Obligation can cook a meal , but love embellishes the table with a potted ivy trailing around slender candles.

Duty writes many letters , but love tucks a joke or a picture or a fresh stick of gum inside.

Compulsion keeps a sparkling house. But love and prayer stand a better chance of producing a happy family.

Duty gets offended quickly if it is not appreciated. But love learns to laugh a lot and to work for the sheer joy of doing it.

Obligation can pour a glass of milk , but quite often love will add a little chocolate. Author Unknown

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. I love this so much!!!

  2. Beautifully put! We are called to do so much more than just robotically follow a list, but to instead genuinely care for those we are and aren’t obligated to!
