Why is true love so precious and important?

Why is true love so precious and important? It is because it is the means by which we can meet God. Just as human beings desire to meet God, God also wants to meet true human beings because of love. The love by which God can see, touch, and share with men and women at the same time, is the love by which men and women love each other. If anything other than love were to be recognized as the most valuable thing in the universe, men and women would fight each other to try to claim it for themselves. Once we realize that love is the highest value, however, we can strive to live for each other and become one with each other, sharing the happiness of possessing love together.

We are created as God’s children

We are created as God’s children. As we grow in love, relating to brothers and sisters, becoming husbands and wives, giving birth and raising children, God is present each step of the way, harvesting true love. God observes and guides us as we develop, and He becomes the owner of love at each stage. In this sense, it can be said that human beings, through whom God comes to own all love, are more precious to God than He is to Himself. In the same way, we attach a thousand times more value to the person we love than to ourselves.

Power, knowledge, money won’t give you true love

Power, knowledge, money, and military might cannot ensure that a person will be welcome in the world of true love. Everyone wants true love, but such love is only possible when we live for others. We need to sacrifice for and serve our partner. Everyone avoids a person who relates to others with the mindset that says, “You should live for me.” This kind of selfish individualism is Satan’s strategy, purpose, and tool. The result can only be hell. We must live for the whole. If a person lives for others, sacrificing himself or herself and serving the whole, then everyone and everything will come to love him.

Experience the profound joy of parental love

When we examine the universe, we see that all beings exist in pairs relating to one another as subject and object. In the mineral world, we observe the relationship of plus and minus. In the plant world, the animal world and the world of human beings, we see the relationship between masculine and feminine. This is because God created the universe in order to fulfil the expression of love. All beings desire the experience of true love through a mutual relationship. Love is the one power in the universe that absolutely no one can possess by himself. Once we have a partner, however, love gives us the power to share the entire universe. Likewise, a husband and wife need children in order to experience the profound joy of parental love.

Loosing friends

It still hurts when I realize how far we are from each other with a friend who would be a real one.

You know, when you don’t even think of how great this what you have is, because you feel it is eternal and everything will be as it is.

And then it’s not.

Hard to find the point when the change starts to happen and then, all of a sudden, you know you are not there where you used to be. Not any more.

And it hurts, hurts a lot.

Where have the good days gone?

You never know. They are just gone.

And you feel the loneliness. The emptiness echoing.

And there is only God to talk.

God who has always been there waiting for you. And now, He is waiting for you to say a word. To say anything.

And there is nothing you can tell Him.

It happens you are empty. There is a void when you understand your real friend is just not that person whom you were thinking as a friend.

Still, God is there.

My friend has been silently waiting for me.

My friend, who has always been there for me. And it was me who became distant. The one who did not respond for His calling.

And still He is here for me.

God still wants to be my friend. Despite I abandoned Him. Despite how I thought we were good when we were not. Despite everything, God is still there.

God is still within.

What am I going to tell Him?

SMM Quotes – 237

“It is logical to say that since God is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal, the love partner God is seeking should also be absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. But the key point we have to remember is that when God created this universe, He used an absolute standard by having absolute faith, love and obedience in His creation. He applied absolute faith when he started Creation, absolute love; on that foundation He created His creation; not below. The standard God established for His creation was absolute faith, love and obedience. When God created humankind God applied absolute faith, and also gave His absolute love, also in order to raise and grow them God practised absolute obedience. Even when it comes to marriage between husband and wife, when there is absolute faith between husband and wife, natural love flows between them.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

A man of character keeps his promises

A man of character keeps his promises. If I say that you forced the promise I made upon me, and therefore I don’t have to keep it, then I am not a man of character. Law is a set of promises made on a public standard. Thus, all the people who live within its jurisdiction should keep it. If someone cannot keep it, then he should be punished by public regulation. This is the responsibility of the keepers of the law. No matter who initiated it, a promise must be kept. You will be a loser if you do not keep your promise. In making a promise, everyone has to come to an accord based on the common standard.

The nature of love

Only love can make two people become one body centring on True Love: father and son, husband and wife, and father and mother can make one body. When brothers unite centring on True Love, they become one body. Only True Love can make unity and oneness. This is not the love of receiving, but the love of giving.

The Preciousness of Men

In all of history, what is the most precious thing for woman? The answer is, naturally, man. What is the most precious thing for man? The conclusion, naturally, is woman. So, which is the most important being-you or your fiancée, your spouse? Your spouse. It’s an amazing conclusion. How many men and women exist with such a correct, precise understanding at this time on earth? This awareness is so precious that someone may demand that you must work very hard for 100 years before you can get a spouse with this understanding. Perhaps you had to work 1,000 years If someone gave you that condition, would you say, “Well, 100 years is too long.” Or would you work 100 or even a thousand years in order to get your mate? Would you do that?

Women are so precious, but all by themselves, they are useless. The only way for a woman to become valuable is to bring a man along with her, no matter how ugly or deformed or useless he seems. No matter how he looks, a man must be brought to you in order for your value to begin.

God is very tolerant, but let’s imagine we had a God with a very short temper. He never puts Up with anything for long. Suppose God looks down at men and women fighting so much. God knows the value of man and woman and that they are not supposed to fight, so what does God do? He removes all the women from the men and hides them. What would world of only men be like? Would the men all say, “Oh, now I feel better. We can finally have peace on earth. I can do perfectly well without that woman.” Do you think they would say that? What would happen? Men, at that point, would desperately pray, “Please God, send me a woman.” Probably the men would not ask for a beautiful woman like they do now, but would say, “Father, give me a woman, any woman. I don’t care if she’s black or Oriental-it really doesn’t matter, so long as she’s a woman. Even if she’s ugly or tiny, it doesn’t matter, Father. I can put her in my pocket or carry her on my back.”

How much do you think a man would cherish a woman after such a prayer? The same goes for women. If you had to buy your own mate by paying with one arm, would you hesitate? If there were no men to be had, you would jump at the chance, wouldn’t you? What if, after you give away one arm, somehow it wasn’t enough, and you had to give the other arm. Would you do that? You would! What about your legs? You would give up both of them because you still want a man. If you were really in that hard situation where you had to buy him or else you would not have him, then you probably would do it. In your opinion, is man that precious? If you had to give up your eye or your nose, would you still pay that price to buy a man? You probably would. That’s a very serious matter. You would do it because a man is that precious.

Have you ever regarded your husband as being that precious? Actually, that husband of yours should be enshrined and you should just worship him. We never touch precious things; we just look at them from afar. That’s how valuable your husband should be to you. There is no way of denying it. People take each other for granted because there are plenty of men and women, but we take many things for granted that we shouldn’t.
