Knowing How To Love:
The Greatest Treasure Of Any Nation
Banning things that can kill will not change the heart of anyone. It's not the guns, hammers, gasoline, or knives that are the problem. There is a spiritual factor behind every human circumstance. In the United States, we have allowed government to legislatively withhold from our children the training in how to love. Most parents don’t know how to love, and so it is not passed into their children. The 10 Commandments have been banned from schools, and now generations of children have grown to adulthood without any knowledge of the Creator. There is a direct consequence for this neglect. People do not love Him, nor one another. The result is the "whirlwind" of hatred and selfishness. They still don't get it; they think legislating more control over "things" will do the job. The main reason government is so huge is due to the failure of the family unit, which is also the result of no love-training, only found in the 10 Commandments. Read them daily, and learn how to love. When nations rise against nations, and kingdoms against kingdoms, it is a lack of love that is the source of the problem. The desire to possess power and wealth over others reflects the absence of love.
If obeying the 10 Commandments is the worst thing that happens to a society, I'd consider moving there. The 10 Commandments are a treasure that yields the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. Love is not a “thing”, it’s the Person we know Whose Name is Yahusha. In a land where the 10 Commandments are loved, He is more than a citizen; He’s the King.
If you know Him, you know Love.
The Hawaiian motto reflects a truth we should all acknowledge:
“The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.”
1Jn / Yahukanon 2:3-11: “And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.
The one who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Alahim has been perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked.
Beloved, I write no fresh command to you, but an old command which you have had from the beginning. The old command is the Word which you heard from the beginning.
Again I write you a fresh command, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light now shines.
The one who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in the darkness until now.
The one who loves his brother stays in the light, and there is no stumbling-block in him.
But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
