This was sent to me today and I realized, from this first love, all other loves will flow.
If we can’t love ourself, treat ourself well, take care of ourself, then how would we ever have the ability to love another? Truly love another.
Any love, that does not come after self love, is giving away the love we have not learned to give to ourself.
It is idolatry.
For in ourself is God and the greatest commandment is to love God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
From this love and care flows out all love for others. From this living water, we can love without measure, without end.
