THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST 5 (Dealing with Human Beings)

Image result for Jesus Christ

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Matthew 5:43-48 KJV

As the composer writes, "Life in this world is a great struggle both for the young and old." We live in a world where most people seek their own. The best key to identifying a leader or a valuable person is to check the mindset. Most often, selfless people are leaders whiles selfish people turn to be followers.

Leaders are concerned about the world, their country, the community and the citizens. Followers only fight for their welfare and ignore the life of those around them. If you don’t carry a strong heart, you cannot lead people. Human beings are too complicated to manage. The fact is, you cannot manage human beings. You can show them the way by your actions and they will follow.

Human beings are not like animals. You cannot easily predict human beings because they are mysterious. The best method I believe you should apply is to connect with the wisdom of God, study the psychology of human beings which includes their temperament, personalities, culture, upbringing, their needs and wants and what they love. If you know these basics things about human beings, you can connect with people.

The way you think differs totally from the way the other person thinks. Most people believe that men are logical and women are emotional. This is one reason most women can express themselves through interaction and emotions. Human beings desire to love, security and appreciation. Abraham Maslow’s theory best explains human needs and wants. 

Most men also use their physical strength. If you study human nature carefully, you observe that most women love to express their heart through interaction. Most women express their anger through quarrelling because they are strong inwardly.

Most men also express their strength through hard labour and reasoning. You can recall from the book of Genesis that God created the man (Adam) to work and the woman (Eve) to help. Basically, God created the man to use his physical strength and the woman to assist the man.

Most people believe that men interpret reverence or respect as love whiles women interpret love as a security and respect. This is one reason Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus that a man should love her wife whiles the woman should reverence her husband (See Ephesians 5:33). If "we" express these two virtues in marriage, the marriage will stand the storms of life.

Sometimes it is very difficult to love people who hate, disrespect, discredit, oppose and misunderstand you. You can love people who love you but loving people who hate can you be difficult. How can we love people who curse, disrespect, discredit, and hate us?

Jesus said we should love people who hate us. Well, in the natural it may look impossible. Understand that Jesus will never command us to do something we cannot do. In the natural, it may look like we are foolish. We are not wiser Jesus Christ because He is the source of wisdom.

If the producer of wisdom is commanding us to love those who curse us, then it means there must be something hidden in this Word. First, understand that we are too limited to fully understand the ways of humankind. As I wrote earlier that mankind is too complicated to understand. Our level of wisdom, knowledge, and experience can never measure up with the wisdom of God.

Sin has blinded our wisdom, and it has made us feeble in the hands of the enemy. Sin has damaged the wisdom of God in our lives. This is one reason we have to desire more of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a carrier of God’s wisdom. He lives in us and He desires to help us. Even Jesus grew in wisdom when He walked on earth as a man (See Luke 2:52).

We need the wisdom of God to enable us to deal with our fellow human beings because sin has limited us. Perfect wisdom shall dominate the earth when we fully unite with Jesus Christ. As far as we live in this corrupt flesh and dark world, we will encounter people with a different mindset. Some people are logical, philosophical, realists, atheist, religious, pagans, humanist, free thinkers and many more.

If you don’t apply wisdom, you will always live on the dark side of life. One of the best pieces of advice I received from a woman I respected when I was serving the nation of Ghana after I completed University, she said to me “In this world, if you want to be happy, create your own happiness, don’t expect someone to make you happy.” Such is life. If you fail to apply wisdom in this world, life will become difficult.

Learn to love people unconditionally. People may hurt you, curse you, and even reject you because they are limited in understanding. Do you know that the Romans crucified Jesus Christ out of ignorance? Some Jews thought the Messiah (Jesus Christ) would appear in a kingship stature where he would come from the wealthiest family.

Rather, the Messiah was born in a manger together with sheep’s. The Messiah slept with animals for a season. The Messiah did not have any political connections. The Messiah learned carpentry work because that was His temporal earthly father’s job. Jesus was a professional carpenter and the Son of God. It offended the religious people because they saw the Messiah was a common person on the street. Read for yourself.

And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
Mark 6:2-4 KJV

The Jews thought the Messiah would come from a royal family.
Loved one, meditate on this Word.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV

Ask the Holy Spirit to show you the way because the people you think are your enemies may be your friends. The people you think they are your friends may be your enemies in disguise. If the enemy wants to permanently destroy you, he disguises himself as a friend. When this happens, you become blind to his deception. Some enemies may sympathize with you but in the darkness, they will be backstabbing you.

Divine Key: Ask God to expose your real enemies and stop using your limited wisdom.
