I strongly believe to love others we must start by loving ourselves, for what love can we share if we don’t know what it is like to be loved. For god so love the world he gave his only son, and he did not only give his son but he gave him to die for us so we can understand the magnitude of his love for us. So we shouldn’t have a problem sharing a little food, choth, water etc. For out created has gone to the level where he gave his son’s LIFE for me and you!.
Now loving yourself is like training yourself to do the things to make others happy, for you would never starve yourself when you can afford food. So you will know what God expect you to do for other’s when you know what you love yourself, as the word bible said ” do unto others as you’d like others to do unto you”. So if a man or a woman Love’s his or herself that person will make it a priority to feed thy self, right.
Then base on my example above if a person Love’s, weather intimately or just a natural brotherly love, that person must be responsible, like a father to a son, like a President to a nation, like God to his Creation.
As it is said in first John 4 vs 7-8, Beloved, let us love one another for love is from God and everyone who Love’s is born of God and knows God. 8- The one who does not love does not know God for God is Love.
We all know God’s Love does not Partial so therefore we must lice all, dispute or Status, physical features or whatever it maybe. Again I go back to the bible, First Corinthians 13 vs 10 sais , But when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. I understand from this that if we Love for vanity, looks, talent, or because of what one can do for us, then we are clearly in the wrong path. For the path to distruction is broad but the path to righteousness is narrow. Be one of the few who Love’s thy self.
Hope you understand my message to you, great things can be done with unity and with unity comes Love. Bless you, and thanks for reading.
