Do You Feel Really Loved?

Unless we have a true sense of God's love, something is missing in our lives. If we are being unjustly criticized, facing prejudice, feeling alone, it is not simply human justice, sympathy, or companionship that meets the need. Underlying all problems is the need to be really loved—or rather, the need to recognize and acknowledge the unlimited outpouring of God's love for man. The understanding this involves brings healing, but not without bringing to light our own capacity to love more spiritually. If we have no problem in loving, we have no problem.

"Wait a minute," someone may protest. "I know what's coming: the first thing I'm supposed to do is to like the other party, no matter what he thinks of me!"
