Love God, Love People…

That includes ourselves…

I’m not sure sometimes if it’s harder to love myself or others…Actually, for me, most of the time, it’s harder to love myself. It’s easier for me to focus on serving others.

However, God’s 2 greatest commandments cover love of all:

1st – God

2nd – Other people, with the built in Caveat that we love ourselves.

What God is trying to say is not to ignore other’s needs, just like (for the most part) we’d not deny our own (which, for me, is so not true; I have been completely ignoring my need for regular sleep, meals, and sometimes, bathroom breaks…)


 

“Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first & greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
– Matthew 22:37-40
