day no. 12,833: the love of self is like budging in the line to hell‏

1 Corinthians 16:14
Your every action must be done with love.
Every action with love?
Some days I would do well to do any action out of love!

That is if we’re talking about other people and God.
Every action I currently commit is done out of love...
For me.
I'm a hero at loving myself.
Top shelf.
Loving yourself does not count as this Biblical definition of love.
You are not fulfilling the Law by loving only you.
That is idolatry.
Which is against the Law.
Ephesians 5:29a

For no one ever hates his own flesh but provides and cares for it…
That’s child’s play.
Loving one’s self is the one thing to which we are fiercely committed come hell or high water from the day we are born.
We will never need to be instructed on how to take ourselves and our self-interests into account.
We do it naturally.
We do it well.
1 Corinthians 15:36

Foolish one! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.

We all sow.
We will all reap.

Die today and tomorrow to yourself and you will live to God now and forever.
Live today and tomorrow for yourself and you will remain dead to God now and forever.
