Content is God

We all know for sure that Content is said to be the king of SEO. But I will prove to you in the coming 3 minutes that it is not just a King but God.

Good content is that that helps your customers and potential customers. A blog you write, a video you create, or an ebook you giveaway should be all about giving and nothing but giving.

Most new marketing and advertising strategies now know how important free content is, so they try their best to "manipulate" it and use it as a "bait" to attract people and after they are hooked in they ask them to "Pay the Money" whether through premium services or simply via advertisements.

I am not saying that advertising is wrong and paid services are evil. of course not. What I mean is that when you think content generation, your mindset needs to be focused on giving a true value not exploiting the readers/users/viewers. Think of it as charity!

God is Love: How does God Define Love? 

The Bible tells us that "God is Love" (1 John 4:8). But how? The most well known verse is John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." 

So one way God defines love is in the act of giving. However, what God gave (or should we say, "who" God gave) was not a mere gift-wrapped present; God sacrificed His only Son so that we, who put our faith in His Son, will not spend eternity separated from Him.

Another great verse about God's love is found in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." In this verse and in John 3:16, we find no conditions placed on God's love for us. God doesn't say, "as soon as you clean up your act, I'll love you; " nor does He say, "I'll sacrifice my Son if you promise to love Me." In fact, in Romans 5:8, we find just the opposite. God wants us to know that His love is unconditional, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still unlovable sinners. We didn't have to get clean, and we didn't have to make any promises to God before we could experience His love. His love for us has always existed, and because of that, He did all the giving and sacrificing long before we were even aware that we needed His love. 

God is Love: It's Unconditional 

God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God's love is unconditional, and it's not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn't love us because we're lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship. - 

God is Love: True Love Only Comes Through a Relationship With Him

God is Love! As such, true love -- God's love -- can be summed up in this passage of scripture: "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another" (1 John 4:7-11). 


Your content is your expression of unconditional love, you expect nothing in return.
Moreover, your content is not just an act of one way giving, but an act of building a strong and passionate relationship. And finally, every time you post a piece of content, it has to be a masterpiece, a sort of sacrifice of time and resources for the sake of those you love.
