You’ve been told many times
That you have to love yourself
Before you can freely give
Love to someone else.
Well, toss that idea away.
It’s a lie – it’s pure deceit.
If that’s an idea you cling to,
You’re headed for defeat!
The love you have to give
Did not come from yourself.
It came from your divine Maker.
He gifted you with this wealth.
You were made in His image.
You were loved from the very start.
You have love that’s overflowing
From your Heavenly Father’s heart.
Accept with joy the unconditional gift.
Then pass it on to all you meet.
You’ll find by giving back that love,
Love is a two-way street.
I love you, dear and precious reader.
I love that you came to visit.
I freely give my love to you…
Pass it on!
Self-love’s not a prerequisite.
