Have you ever been a victim of abuse, mistreatment, or injustice and found it difficult to love and forgive? Many times the pains of our past keep us from experiencing joy in the present and hope in the future. But there is healing at the cross. For it is there that Jesus provides the power for us to love our friends, enemies, and even frenemies.
Self-admiration has created a culture of narcissism and a 'love gap' that diminishes us. What the world needs most is a love that is the polar opposite of narcissism. A love that is selfless and self-abandoning. A love that does not ask, 'What’s in it for me?' but 'What’s in it for those I am privileged to know?' A love that isn’t about being served but serving others. Your dreams come alive when you are preoccupied with making other people's dreams come true. That is where real happiness is found.
