Everyone’s different, but we all love someone or something. The system we live in tells us that it’s okay to love ourselves and put ourselves first. It tells us that it’s okay to lust after others and call it love. It tells us that it’s okay to love those who love us and treat us well – and to hate those who hate us, and treat us badly. In our world system it’s okay – natural – to love ourselves and the people in our circle – and not give much thought to God. Jesus said that loving God with all we are – needs to come first. It’s thinking like that that renews our minds and transforms us into truly loving persons – because God is the One who increases our capacity to love, be generous, show kindness, goodness, patience and compassion. The goal is to leave love and kindness in our wake.
