The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.
There are so many people striving for power. It seems to be an addiction that consumes everything. . Nothing satisfies except more power. I wonder if it even satisfies those who become president. In the struggle to be on top people are not important. This is such a devastating way to live. I’m not even sure that those who live this way actually love themselves. This is not the way God calls us to live. We are called to love God and love others. In the process we are also asked to love ourselves because God love us. His love provides us with all the self worth we need. We just have to recognize it.
Loving God, thank you for seeing us as your children and for loving us. Help us to know your love and be fulfilled.
