Being too engrossed with our inner self, always satisfying our own needs or desires and failing sensitivity towards the people and circumstance of our life, spells love of oneself. This is human nature at its worst; and I am guilty as charged.
However, when we look out and find favor in serving others by simply being there when needed makes us renew our social motivation to love others fulfilling the next essential commandment. Loving God is ultimate and our social relationships come second.
We should begin to emanate what Jesus modeled when HE sacrificially gave up HIS life for our sake, not in its literal sense because we can never come to par nor be in any way near its fringe. But translate in our life the very essence of love in whatever form we can for others, from our inner being towards someone outside our own.
As said in John 15, verse 13: “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
