“The greatest love of all is happening to me.
I found the greatest love of all inside of me.
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve.
Learning to love yourself . . . it is the greatest love of all.”
No one can ever sing this song like the late, legendary Whitney Houston. She truly is one the most amazing vocal wonders of all times. Although her performance had an ability to captivate everyone within the sound of her voice, sadly, the lyrics of this former, chart-topping, #1 hit are faulty.
The greatest love all. People search tirelessly for this love. And so many times, they come up either empty-handed, or they come up holding a counterfeit for this supreme love.
My friend, there is no doubt, the greatest love of all is not learning to love ourselves, but undoubtedly, the greatest love of all is the unfathomable love God has for us.
This Valentine’s Day, I challenge you (and I challenge myself) to live with awareness of the love God has for us. There has never been and there will never be a greater act of love than God Almighty sending His only begotten, sinless Son to earth to die for our sinfulness.
God knows us best and loves us most! FOREVER! Won’t you be His?
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
