“Let not loyalty and faithfulness forsake you; bind them about your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:3-4
We grow in the spirit. When we travel down the path that God offers, we experience a spiritual growth that knows no bounds. Peace overcomes us and we manage to feel fuller, receiving clarity in order to be able to overcome situations that otherwise would be impossible for us to address. This tranquility will ultimately be the key that opens the doors to a closer relationship with God and all the people around us.
“And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2
We grow in solidarity. Because this aspect is also part of our approach to Christ, who from His testimony in the Holy Bible as well as through His example tells us that our growth will never be complete if we focus on ourselves without helping our neighbors, who is, alongside us, the object of our Holy Father's love.
“No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:12
We grow in empathy. Empathy is the beginning of solidarity, it is the first step that will give us full access to helping our brothers. Empathy consists of putting oneself in the place of someone else and experiencing firsthand the joys and the hardships that those around us live. Complete this mission to attain solidarity.
“If any one says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.” 1 John 4:20
We spread positivity. Because unlike all negative things, positive feelings and emotions spread faster and more effectively. Don’t forget that we must start building a network of positivity that in a short time will expand and act as a protective shield against all those things we do not want in our lives.
“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1
We get closer to God. Having fulfilled all the above, or rather, having attained all those characteristics previously mentioned, we will also have to attain a reward that is present in all that God commands us to do: we must approach Him a little more each time. In doing so we will experience a true approach to our Father, who will fill us with all the benefits of having the love of Christ for our enjoyment.
