We can only love to the extent that we have understood the love that we have received. That is why the first command is to love our God above all else. When we begin to understand how much He has loved us, we begin to love ourselves 'better' and then love others 'better' also. We can only love our neighbor as ourself to the extent that we understand how much God loves us.
Is it obvious that the son in the clip has no idea how much he has been loved by his Father and Mother, so therefor extends less honor than we would like.
That is precisely why God our Father sent his Son. To Open our eyes to the love of the Father for us who are so undeserving. Undeserving because of our ignorance.
the greatest prayer I have ever prayed (other than the Our Father) was;
Lord, show me who you say I am.
as He shows me who He created me to be, I begin to see how much He loves me, and I am humbled, and I learn to love myself more deeply, and I learn to love others to that same depth.
does anyone owe anyone anything? We owe God everything and we give Him as much as we are capable of by giving to our brothers and sisters, His creation, and ourselves. Take care to do so, we are our brothers keeper.
