Selfish Love

CandyLand-bigLove puts others first. Love puts myself last.

Do I love this way?

When Little Brother wants to play a game, and I selflessly agree to play, am I really being selfless if I’m the one who picks the game? Am I really being loving if I refuse to play a “little kid game” in favor of one that I will be more likely to enjoy?

If I were truly being selfless and loving, I would let him pick, wouldn’t I?

Could it be that all this time I’ve been fooling myself? That when I thought I was showing love, it was really a selfish love?

Is there even such a thing as selfish love?

Lord, help me to be truly selfless, truly loving – just as You are.
