“Be nice, forgive yourself for making mistakes and then forgive others as you ask God to forgive you, so you can move forward with your life, to grow in grace, mercy, and peace.” ~ Jon Barnes
Being honest, helpful and successful is about enjoying the love God has given you to share with others and monitoring the successful impact your good work, words, and wisdom has on loved ones, friends and strangers. You cannot do this while living in the past, carrying all of the hurt, disappointments, misunderstandings, and confusion from your heart into the next new great thing you should be doing. Stop hoarding the hate, which deteriorates your body, mind, faith, and soul. Love the truth with joy, even when you are wrong. Change and grow.
Giving and receiving great information helps us to challenge our thinking, motives, and quality of good work when we honestly communicate ideas, methods, and business plans for future goals and projects. Ask questions and talk to people. This self reflective education gives us a direction to point our energy, time, and resources into developing better ways of Godly productivity. Dump the fat from the hate and grow love muscles by exercising your faith, love, and patience practices. Share your love food and eat less.
Share your experience by practicing your love talent with each family member, ideally in person, to reconnect, focus, love, and grow God’s business model. How can you have a connection with God and you don’t have a real connection to your children, parents, family, friends, and enemies. Your love is fake and unproductive when life is played like a baseball game, with your focus only being on hitting home runs and out scoring everyone. Forgive yourself and others for striking out and making unforced errors. Loving God and each other makes us all obedient winners.
Did you give up trying to communicate with your family, by not calling, visiting, or talking to them or is this your fake interpretation of God’s Love?

1 The elder,
To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the truth.
2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. 3 It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
5 Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers and sisters,[a]even though they are strangers to you. 6 They have told the church about your love. Please send them on their way in a manner that honors God. 7 It was for the sake of the Name that they went out, receiving no help from the pagans. 8 We ought therefore to show hospitality to such people so that we may work together for the truth.
9 I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will not welcome us.10 So when I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, spreading malicious nonsense about us. Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.
11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.12 Demetrius is well spoken of by everyone—and even by the truth itself. We also speak well of him, and you know that our testimony is true.
13 I have much to write you, but I do not want to do so with pen and ink. 14 I hope to see you soon, and we will talk face to face.
Peace to you. The friends here send their greetings. Greet the friends there by name.
