Am I Lovable?
Many times, when we are trying to figure out if someone loves us, our reasoning is strange. We might look at our economic success, popularity, exercise of power, or health, and if those are not what they should be, conclude that we are not lovable. Saint Paul points out that the values of the present world are not proper for understanding God’s love. God loves us. Nothing can happen that can stop God from loving. We might fail to return the love to the Lord, but nothing we can do can make Him not love us. (see Rom 8:35, 37-39)
