JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

SEVENTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MATTHEW
19th February 2017

“Love your neighbour as yourself”. The lawyer in Luke’s gospel famously asked: “And who is my neighbour?” to provoke the parable of the Good Samaritan. That gives a memorable answer to the question, but leaves the crucial last two words “as yourself” in the air.

Love your neighbour as you love yourself. But how, and to what extent, do you love yourself? It can sound like narcissism or self-importance. But that depends on the meaning of that crucial word “love”. To help answer that dilemma, consider Jesus’ words in John 15: “Love another as I have loved you.” Now try saying to yourself: “I am to love myself to the extent that Jesus loves me.” How does that feel?

St Paul’s famous description of love in I Corinthians 13 provides a practical answer to the question: “What do you mean by love?” Love is always patient and kind. Am I patient and kind to others? Am I equally patient and kind with myself? Love is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Do I criticise and condemn others, or am I ready to excuse them? Do I excuse others readily, but am not so forgiving towards myself? Do I trust myself?

When we are at peace with ourselves, we are more effective in making peace with others. And it all begins by realising that first and foremost we are loved for who we are. God loved us into being. Our life experiences, many of which are beyond our control, have given us a more or less awareness of that truth. Our task is to show people how much God loves them. If I don’t believe how much God loves me, how will they know?

May the Lord bless you.

John
