“Learning to love your Self is the greatest love of all!”
I’d like to attempt to defend a thesis: We, ourselves, need to learn to love others, and we do this by learning to love our SELF.
I will begin by sharing an interesting memory regarding this song by Whitney Houston. I was sitting in an airport restaurant with my father in December, 1985. Her song, “The Greatest Love of All” came on over the PA. This conversation had a great effect on me. Now as an adult this memory has given me insight not only into my father, but myself.
“I love this song!” I exclaimed.
“I don’t!” my father said. “It’s wrong!”
“Wrong? How can it be wrong?” I asked.
“The greatest love is to love God, not to love yourself,” my father replied.
“But didn’t Jesus say to love our neighbor as we love ourselves?” I asked.
