Give A Little Love, Just A Little Love

If you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own.

A video by KŘIŽOVATKA OLOMOUC with background music of Noah and The Whale. Can find the lyric here. Stumbled through this video through a series of bbm broadcast and thanks to Google, found out that it's produced by a Czech, Christian non-profit organisation. Absolutely beautiful.



Isn't it beautiful? Little gestures that count, little deeds that last a lifetime.

Life's more wonderful when everybody can have this sweet awareness to help others, no matter how insignificant they think their action is. Keeping the doors opened for a mother carrying a baby behind us, helping the elderlies cross the road/carry their shopping bags, picking the empty can of coke on the pavement so that nobody got slipped, bringing a takeaway dinnerbox for our colleagues working overtime, holding the lift door for a stranger, etc.

It takes an active approach to life. Maybe a 30-day routine to make it into a habit, and another 60 days to make it be a character. Be nice to people who're not nice to us yet. Be even nicer to people who're already nice to us. Be helpful first, expect to be helped later.

John 15:12
"This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you."

Luke 6:38
"...Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."

Matthew 25:40
"And the King will say, 'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!'"

Hebrew 13:16
And do not neglect doing good and sharing; for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God's secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn't love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn't love others, I would have gained nothing.

All in all, Jesus sums up everything in the bible into two greatest commandments, to love our God and to love others. And He also says that to love others is the same as to love God. So... you know what matters most :)

Just a little love ~~ <3
