should let Him take care of these things for us. We are overstepping our
boundaries when we feel we have to figure everything out for ourselves.

HOW TO LOVE OTHER PEOPLE
Practical Methods For Increasing And Expressing Your Love For Others
Details at => http://www.loveallpeople.org/howtoloveotherpeople.html

Some of the main ideas . . .

FIRST: YOU HAVE GOD'S AUTHORIZATION TO LOVE EVERYBODY!


And the Bible says that EVERYONE IS YOUR NEIGHBOR!
http://www.loveallpeople.org/pearl-everyoneisyourneighbor.html
The Lord wants us to love others as we love ourselves and as He has loved
us. But how exactly do we do this?

The basic way is this: "TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED."
This this is the Golden Rule, God's guideline for all mankind.
http://www.loveallpeople.org/golden.html

llpeople.org/loveintro.html

THE SCRIPTURAL MANDATE TO LOVE OTHER PEOPLE
"Love All People As Yourself."
The Bible states it very clearly, so there can be no possible
misunderstanding: the Law Of Love fulfills the whole Law of God.


THE LAW OF LOVE
_____________________________________________________________

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, "You shall love your
neighbor as yourself." (Galatians 5:14 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________

And who is your neighbor? Everyone is your neighbor. This is shown in the
Parable Of The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37, shown below). Therefore,
"Love your neighbor as yourself" really means "Love all people as
yourself," because everyone is our neighbor.
But what about love for God? Doesn't that come first? Yes, but God counts
our love for others as if it were love for Himself. So when we love
others, we are loving Him at the same time. This is shown in the Parable
Of The Sheep And The Goats (Matthew 25:31-46, in the Appendix below). And
we cannot claim to love God until we first love our fellow man.

_____________________________________________________________
If any one says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a
liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen,
cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________
But what about The Ten Commandments? Aren't we supposed to obey them? Yes,
but The Ten Commandments are only an approximation of what God wants from
us. The Pharisees obeyed all of the Ten Commandments, yet God was very
displeased with them because they did not have love. The exact thing God
wants from us is that we should love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
Everything else depends on this.

But what about holiness? Aren't we supposed to avoid improper sex, etc.
and be pure and chaste? Aren't we supposed to deny our physical selves in
order to strengthen our spiritual selves? Maybe so, but our feeble
attempts at being holy do not even come close to God's high standards. To
Him, they are like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). But if we have love for
others, God will overlook a multitude of our sins (1 Peter 4:8). And if we
forgive others of their offenses against us, He will forgive us of our
offenses against Him (Matthew 5:14-15). Love makes everything holy, since
God is love (1 John 4:8, 4:16).

So all of God's requirements for mankind boil down to this one command:
"YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." If you truly do this one thing
only, it is enough. It then doesn't matter if you fall short on some of
the dozens of others. But if you do not do this, all of the others
together are not enough. This is the big one, more important than all the
others combined.

_____________________________________________________________

If you really fulfil the royal law, according to the scripture,
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well.
(James 2:8 RSV)

TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED
The best way to express your love for other people is to always follow The
Golden Rule, "Treat Others As You Would Like To Be Treated."
http://www.loveallpeople.org/golden.html
THERE IS ONE UNDERLYING RULE FOR RIGHT AND WRONG BEHAVIOR:

"TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED."
This rule is known as "The Golden Rule." Some version of it is found in
most religions, yet it establishes no particular religion; it leads to
harmony among all people; it is the foundation of Democracy; and it leads
to the political goal of "Greatest Good For The Greatest Number, With
Basic Rights For All."

To apply the Golden Rule, simply ask yourself "How would you like to be
treated in the same situation?" Then treat the other person that way. TWO
NOTES:(1) When we say, "Treat others as you would like to be treated,"
this includes all other people, not merely those who happen to be with us
at the moment. So we must also consider the impact of our actions on all
other people, not only those immediately before us. (2) When we say "in
the same situation," this means that our roles and personalities must be
mentally reversed, so that we see the situation from the other person's
point of view, trying to understand his needs and desires as if they were
our own. Also, we need to apply the "Rational Man" standard,
long-established in Law. The Golden Rule does not require us to grant
irrational requests made by insane persons.

situation, please visit

LEARN HOW TO ENJOY OTHER PEOPLE
The common experience of mankind is that if you enjoy someone, it is easy
to love them; but if you do not enjoy them, then it is hard to love them.
So we see that enjoying other people is a big part of loving them.
It is difficult to love other people if we do not enjoy them.

Here are four things to do, which will help you enjoy other people . . .
1. First, set your mind on doing it. Recognize that God wants you to enjoy
other people, not only because He wants you to be able to love them, but
also because He loves you and wants you to have more enjoyment for
yourself! So you have God's complete permission to enjoy other people,
maybe far more than you ever imagined.

2. For every person you encounter, try to find at least one thing about
them which you enjoy. Examples: beautiful face, sweet smile, pretty eyes,
sweet voice, pleasant mannerisms, graceful movements, nice hair,
intelligence, ability with words, ability to fix things, creative
personality, good personality, comforting presence, generosity, ability to
solve problems, personal leadership skills, good sense of style,
attractive body parts, good attitude with children, helpful personality,
good intentions, nice smell, attractive clothing, good attitude with other
people, sincerity, honesty, etc. If you find more enjoyable things about
them, go ahead and list them in your mind.

3. For each thing you enjoy about that person (above), please think of a
complete sentence which expresses your thought. For instance, "I enjoy
watching her smile," or "I enjoy the pleasing sound of his voice." Then
say that sentence out loud, to yourself. Or better yet, tell it to someone
else.

4. If there are things you do not enjoy about that person, do not express
those thoughts in words, because that would make you think about them even
more. But instead, think to yourself one of the following explanations:

"Maybe they can't help it." or
"Maybe they have their own good reasons for being that way." or

"Maybe they don't realize what they are doing."

In other words, give them a good excuse for whatever it is that you do not
enjoy.
If you will do these things, you will be well on your way to developing
your love for others, as well as increasing your own personal enjoyment in
your life.



UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TOLERANCE AND APPROVAL


=> The Difference Between Tolerance And Approval -
http://www.internetchurchofchrist.org/differencebetweentoleranceandapproval.html


INCREASE YOUR LOVE FOR OTHERS BY DOING GOOD TO THEM
It is a happy fact of human nature, that we increase our love for others
by doing good to them. The more good we do to other people, the more our
love for them increases. Try it for yourself, and you will see.
IF WE LOVE, WE MUST FORGIVE
If we love them, we must forgive them. Just as God loves us and has
forgiven us, we must also forgive them. If we will not forgive others, God
will not forgive us! Simple as that. People who claim to be Christians but
who will not forgive are merely deceiving themselves.

A METHOD OF GRANTING FORGIVENESS

FORGIVE EVERYBODY FOR EVERYTHING BAD THEY HAVE DONE TO YOU OR YOURS

But you may say, "I know I should forgive them, but it is very hard to do.
How can I do it? What should I do?"


Here is a good way to go about granting your forgiveness to others.

Forgive Other People -

JESUS ENABLES US TO LOVE OTHERS AS OURSELF
By our own flawed human nature, it is almost impossible to love others as
we love ourself. Maybe some few people can do it, but most people cannot
even come close. But when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord, His Holy
Spirit enters us and dwells within us, transforming our flawed nature into
a more perfect nature, more like His own.

HOW TO LOVE STRANGERS

It is easy to love those who already know you and love you. So here is the
way to love strangers.
First, Give Them What They Ask For - unless you have a good reason not to
do so.
Next, Give Them What They Really Want - as best you can determine it.

Finally, Give Them What They Clearly Need - but do not assume too much.

Always Follow The Law Of Love And The Golden Rule ("Love your neighbor as
yourself," and "Treat others as you would like to be treated."

The Gift Of Your Blessing -
"How To Give Your Blessings To Other People"
http://www.internetchurchofchrist.org/giveyourblessings.html


When we pray for someone, the conversation is between us and the Lord.
When we give our blessings, however, the conversation is between us and
the other person directly, with the Lord listening in, observing.

A blessing is the opposite of a curse. As Christians, we almost never want
to curse anybody for anything. In contrast, we should dispense our
blessings freely, whenever the Spirit leads us to do so.

There are two proven formats for giving a blessing to other people. You
can give it directly to them, using the word "May," followed by whatever
good things you want them to receive. Or you can invoke the Lord's help,
using the words "May the Lord," followed by whatever good things you want
Him to give them. Here are examples . . .

Examples Of Direct Blessings
"May you have a safe trip home, with no difficulties of any kind."
"May your days be filled with joy."

"May your pain subside and your illness go away."

"May you get the job you are trying to obtain."

"May your grief pass by like a cloud, and may peace return to your heart."

"May your heart be filled with joy at this moment of happiness for you."

Examples Of Blessings Which Invoke The Lord's Help
"May the Lord richly bless you as you continue your work in His behalf."
"May the Lord give you a safe trip home, with no problems of any kind."

"May the Lord wipe away your tears and give you peace of mind."

"May the Lord bring love and harmony into your home."


* * *
So don't be shy. Just go ahead and start blessing people, as the Spirit
leads. When Holy Spirit prompts you to give a blessing, do it! Just walk
right up to the other person, maybe shake their hand or touch them, look
them in the eye, and pronounce your blessing on them.
They will recognize immediatly that this is a major expression of love,
and they will *always* appreciate it.

Be sure to give Christ the glory by identifying yourself as a Christian.
The Lord *loves* to use imperfect vessels for His work, so don't feel
unworthy if you are less than a "perfect" Christian. You are *always*
authorized to dispense love to other people: ALWAYS!

Normal, Everyday Life In Harmony With The Will Of God
Day-To-Day Living With The Lord
By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Director - LoveAllPeople.org
To support us, please visit the advertisers on our pages.

Some people prefer a private type of religion, where they simply want to
live their lives in a normal everyday manner, in harmony with the will of
God. They don't want to save any souls, or lead any movements, or be a
conspicuous "religious person" in any way.

Such people are acceptable to God, although He would prefer that they take
a more open active stance for Him. And He reserves his best blessings for
those who openly and boldly express their love and devotion to Him.

Nevertheless, He loves and accepts those who simply want to live in
private accord with His will for them.

For these people, here is all they really need to do: THE BARE MINIMUM . .
.

1. Accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour.
Click HERE! to do that. => http://www.loveallpeople.org/gateway.html
Jesus promises that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life.


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting
life." (John 3:16 KJV)

2. Follow the Golden Rule, which is, "Treat Others The Way You Would Like
To Be Treated."
Click HERE! to find out more about the Golden Rule =>
http://www.loveallpeople.org/golden.html
Jesus teaches that all of God's law is embodied in the Golden Rule.


The Golden Rule

_____________________________________________________________

"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets."
(Matthew 7:12 KJV)
_____________________________________________________________


If you do these two things alone, you will meet all of God's minimum
requirements. You will have a full and rich life on earth, and you will
have an eternity in heaven after you leave this life. You will NOT reach
your highest potential, and you will not receive the highest blessings.
(To achieve these things, you would need to seek Him actively and to
desire intensely to be ever-closer to Him at all times.) But you will be
okay. And for many people, this is all they seek.
