Aletheia is the Greek word for truth, The literal meaning of the word is “the state of not being hidden”.
In our everyday relationship, emotions are involved, the beautiful thing about emotions is they can’t be seen. No one can see our emotions, people perceive our emotions depending on how much of it we show. Even the best of psychologists can only read signs the patient has intentionally or unintentionally shown. These hidden emotions are the biggest fuel for many broken relationships, the people we are trying to communicate with can only see what we display and they would make interpretations in relation to how they also feel.
This has been the very reason many relationships have broken apart, it’s the same reason why we feel our neighbour is the evil witch from the west. To communicate with people properly, we have to make sure we understand their emotions (the reason behind action) to truly hear what they are saying. This doesn’t mean, you should start asking people 21 questions, this means deciding to put more effort into understanding the other person. That little extra level of effort can go a long way in helping you love your neighbour.
The aim of this blog is to help you see your neighbour in another light, to help you love rightly. We will delve into stories from different categories and learn to open our hearts to love. Together we will learn to love God and to love our neighbours. Instead of counting the number of haters we have, we will save all that emotional energy and make investments in love.
36 “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?”
37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
