Being a strong person, being a person of power, you must learn to yield yourself to the needs of others.
You must sacrifice your own ambition for those who need a purpose to pursue their own ambitions. The Lord Our God is a loving God who sacrificed his son so that he could express his sympathy for the human condition that is tempered by the fire of pain found in an unforgiving world.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. -Hebrews 4:15
This is an example of a principle that we must all strive for even if we are not individuals who possess great power. Power is being able to share a positive message and learning to forgive. The same as the Lord has forgiven us.
This allows us to gain what we all desire and in turn gives us great power. Because when you give and are understanding, as well as forgiving, you earn respect. Yet in practicing such things we must not seek power but rather for the purpose of sympathy that softens our hearts and helps us lay our burdens bare.
When you admire someone you yourself earn admiration. Yet you must not delve sympathy out for respect and admiration, you must practice sympathy genuinely because it heals us from the pain in our hearts. Self serving deeds are empty and void of true structure of character.
Seeking confrontation and fearing people into submission is a cruel aspect that causes people to be unsettled and not forgiving causes those around you to not be genuine. It gives them no liberation or a sense of themselves.
We must follow and practice the great love, understanding and forgiving In which the Lord gives us. “In his love and mercy and in his mercy he redeemed them.”(Isaiah 63:9)
