Heartless

“If you can speak about what you care about to a person you disagree with, without deingrating or insulting them, then you may actually be heard… and you may even change their mind… or they may change yours…” Amy Poehler

Heartless individuals hide behind righteous pride. Trust is what they want but their actions speak against building relationships. Their heart is so cold its numb to feelings… acknowledgement of others opinions. Selfish decisions impact the people around them… claiming they are looking out for “everyone”. But yet their decisions are the opposite of the people they care about or lead. Decisions are blurred by passive listening, ineffective vision and horrible follow up. Others are the blame for everything wrong. There is no accountablity only to their “inner circle” who share heartless behaviors. Their decisions lack the morals and ethics of what they claim they have. They are perfect at ignoring the truth… reality… and think time evolves around their acknowledgement to address it.

Heartless people don’t understand their own heart… fear of their own emotional stability… They are a pro at displaying various of faces to win the hearts of many but their actions will taint the people they care or lead.

Amy speaks about how we are all different… but how do we listen, acknowledge, learn from people who are different than us… you or me??? If you have heartless tendecies… this is… will be diffcult.

In some shape, form or fashion… we have been heartless. At least I know I have. Typically if someone is different its easy to ignore… avoid… pretend you care… act like you want to know… make fun… forget…etc. But what if… the person you depise is the one holding your answer… a much needed answer… a serious prayer request. Your heart (attitude) maybe in the way of an answer prayer. So is it worth it to stay heartless?? Of course not… but why does it happen???

Mark 12:28-31
28 Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”
29 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 
30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’This is the first commandment.
31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no other commandment greater than these.

It happens because we do not understand love. God commanded us to love. Isnt loving natural??? The unconditional love… that agape love… to a person who hurt you ?!?!? How do you love a heartless person? I dont know about you but OUCH for me!!!

I know I can love and forgive in Christ. Without Him… I believe its IMPOSSIBLE. The world… society shows us that you love on conditions… Christ shows us to love inspite of…

I don’t know when the Lord will give me my departing papers… I know my heart must be right because it doesnt profit me when I return evil for evil. God gets no glory in that behavior and thought.

Heartless people profit in moments not in longevity and wealth. As I stated before WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER. Reciprocity speaks to how you treat people… how we treat everyone… even the stranger you decide not to smile at.

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Soooo… if you are heartless or have tendicies you are actually handing out poison to someone soul and mind.

1. Conduct a spiritual check up. Make sure you are in order. You can use the fruit of the spirit as a guideline Galatians 5:22-23.
2. Pray for yourself. Renew your mind on Christ to help change your behavior Romans 12:1-2
3. Pray for the heartless. When entering into intercessory (praying for someone else) put on the whole armor of God.  Esphesians 6:10-12

When you follow God… and obedient to his commandments… “wierd stuff” will happen. But just know Psalms 91, Matthew 6:32-34 and Ezekiel 33:11.

The enemy is always mad when you are obedient and love God. So the devil… people who are heartless… negative folks will have a fit… a tantrum when you express the matters of what God wants in your heart (expressed love inspite of)

Hugs and love starts with me and you! 🙂

Make it contagious!

  1. Listening to others is a skill we all can work harder at. This will help us communicate or thoughts and ideas in a way that is not insulating or belittling to them.

    1. Yes! Listening to someone whose opinion you can not conceptualize is diffcult. The communication is key… but I also think it takes time… to understand view points… which in some cases some folks “aint got time for”. It is something I think everyone should look at for themselves.

  2. I love it and it was well said. Do not hold a grudge against people who have done you wrong but find forgiveness in your heart. Because tomorrow is not promised but it is a blessing to live another day.
