Goodbye is Only for Those Who Love with Their Eyes
By: Jeremiah, Servant of the Living God
Goodbye is only for those who love with their eyes. For those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation.
In relationships, like a family, a marriage, a friendship, or with relatives, if there is love nothing like a goodbye or an end if you love your wife, husband, friends, siblings, or relatives.
I am always thinking about what exactly causes goodbye in relationships. I concluded that there must be no love from the heart and soul. If there is love nothing like that a goodbye or separation. The love was absent or is now absent.
Romans 13:10 (KJV)
“Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.”
In 2 Samuel 13:1, Amnon loved Absalom’s sister with his eyes, not from his heart or soul. If he had loved her from his heart or soul, he couldn’t do such a thing to her or deceive his brother and King David, his father.
2 Samuel 13:1 (KJV)
“And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.”
This passage tells the story of Amnon, one of King David’s sons, who becomes infatuated with his half-sister Tamar, the sister of his brother Absalom. Amnon’s desire for Tamar leads to a tragic situation in which he rapes her, causing a rift within the family and leading to Absalom’s revenge against Amnon. The story highlights the consequences of unchecked desire and the importance of respecting boundaries within relationships, even within one’s own family.
When there is no love, it’s when deceit creeps in. Amnon deceived Tamar, his sister. He loved with the eyes, and this led to separation and death.; 2 Samuel 13:1-39.
Don’t become an enemy of your relatives or people, Amnon became an enemy to his own family, because he listened to Jonadab, his friend’s advice. The bible says Jonadab was a very subtil man.
Matthew 10:36 (NIV)
“A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”
Nothing like love in this world, no matter the spiritual gift you have if there is no spirit of love in you, you have nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)
“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
This verse is part of a larger passage in which the Apostle Paul is discussing the importance of love in the Christian life. He explains that even the most impressive spiritual gifts and acts of service are worthless without love. In verse 13, he emphasizes that faith, hope, and love are the enduring qualities that truly matter in the Christian life, but love is the greatest of these.
While faith and hope are essential components of the Christian life, Paul argues that love is the most important because it is the foundation of all relationships. Love motivates us to act with kindness, compassion, and selflessness toward others, just as God has shown love to us. It is a powerful force that can overcome all obstacles and transform lives.
Love from your heart and soul. Be nice to people. Avoid negative words and pray always; (Proverbs 15:29 and Proverbs 16:7).
If you connect your life, and your faith to God, He will answer your prayers in Jesus’ name. Be encouraged and have a blessed day.
As a Christian don’t believe that you can be defeated in your problems. Without challenges or problems, God can’t show his power.
Don’t look at the size of your problem, but the size of your God. God is bigger than your problem. Never allow Satan to come your way.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28
- Galatians 5:16-26
- Galatians 6:9
- Lord, rescue me by your mercy in Jesus’ name.
- God, I need your divine intervention and visitation in Jesus’ name.
- Holy Spirit empower me to do your will in Jesus’ name.
- Lord grant me victory over every challenge in Jesus’ name.
To God be the glory. You shall be blessed in Jesus’ name, sealed.
