‘Learning to love yourself. It is the greatest love of all….’
Well.. I don’t know, but I simply can’t wholeheartedly agree to that song. As what the scripture says:
‘There’s no greater love than this, that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.” (John 15:13)
I know of someone who never loved anyone besides himself. It has always been he, him and his. He only works to live but never shared his earnings with anyone. It seems like other people have the obligation to feed him and see through his needs. He never shared what he had. Whatever he has is his alone, but he feels free to utilize or consume someone else’s.
He grew old depending on other people. He never worked for anyone because he was too proud to accept directives but was too lazy to save money to put up his own, even very small, business. He only works when he feels like it, not considering the bills that pile up and which he doesn’t share a single cent to.
He left his family because he feels that his wife defies him and looks down on him. He never would understand that that was maybe so because he never gave her any reason to regard him highly. Well, I don’t know, but I feel sorry for that person because he will never know the real meaning of love.
