We’re Only Human

pd-12-quoteAnd it is, after all, a fine line we tread;we’re told we must love ourselves before anyone else will, but we too often get carried away with the concept of loving ourselves first. We try to love others by doing things for them, but, too often, we only do those things if we’re not inconvenienced, or the things we do benefit us as well. And, even then, we sometimes do things for others begrudgingly.
I wonder… how we’d feel if God loved us the way we love others?

I look forward to the day when I fully grasp how much God loves me. I know when I do, He will fill me so full of His love I won’t be able to contain it, and then I’ll love others as much as God loves me.

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:12
