Good Monday Morning Coffee conversation everyone ☺️! I hope you’re doing great. Welcome to a new day, a new week, and another encouraging conversation. So, if you are ready, then grab something yummy drink ☕️ and let’s get into the discussion!
So, for today’s conversation we will continue onward with our series (Loving Others Well). Last week we discuss why treating ourselves well is beneficial when it comes to being able to love others. One of the take aways from last week was from Mark 12:31, which instructs us to love our neighbor in the same way we would love ourselves. So let’s get started with part 3:
This is what being intentional looks like when you are loving others. It’s definitely a selfless act that is aimed at cheering the other person on. This is something that I think would step up the way we love others as ourselves and to be on another level. Like what was mention in part two, it’s about doing to others what you would like to be done to you. Of course when we accomplish a huge hard task like graduating from high school, getting that degree, giving that intimidating speech, getting a license, having a baby, getting married, or publishing that book, we are so grateful when others celebrate our accomplishments. If someone does not want to celebrate with us, most of us will celebrate our accomplishments alone. Now even though it may come down to that, celebrating with others would be a lot more fun.
I believe humans need these special moments of celebration. During certain milestones in a person life I believe we have a deep need to be joyful about accomplishments. It helps wrap up that accomplishment with an exclamation point. I know we all or maybe not have experience times when we achieve something and there was no one around who cared. Deep inside, you perhaps felt disappointed. This disappointment can take time to get over and sometimes led to resentfulness, bitterness, and un-forgiveness. Instead of allowing another person’s accomplishment to go uncelebrated, plan ahead as you keep in mind the positive effects that this will have on someones present and future.
Celebrating the big accomplishments of others are important but also I think its great to just celebrate others in little ways just because you want to show them they are special. I love breaking through someone’s day and doing something nice for them. It can be simple like buying them candy, giving them flowers, taking them to store and buying them there item of choice (with in reason, of course), playing a game with them, looking at something they enjoy , cooking something special for them, or just taking the to time to talk with them over coffee or tea. There are varies ways to celebrate others. It is just as important to take sometime and focus on them which will make them feel special, important to you, and loved. Celebrating my family has been on my mind for sometime. I think it is also important to remember that we don’t know when we will leave this earth, so we should to take advantage of the time that we have.
So to conclude part three, celebrating others I believe is such an awesome and fun way to not only liven up the lives of others but it will also liven up yours as well. One of the reasons I do this is to make sure that I do not allow the effects of familiarity to sink in. Usually when this happens, we can take people for granted and forget that people are a blessing. Celebrating people causes our relationships to not feel burdensome and makes it a joy to have each other around through the years. So, there are so many reasons why we should celebrate others.
Side note: I believe celebrating others helps us to be selfless.
Monday Morning Coffee question: In what ways do you celebrate others and how often do you think we should celebrate others and why?
So until next Monday, remember to take it one day at a time, stay encourage in the Lord, and remember God loves you sooo much, so make sure to love Him back!
