|Hello, pwkom04 . This is a review from "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group" ! I received "This One's For ..." via a newsletter. I have the following comments to offer.
For a long list of broken, abused, molested, unloved, poverty-stricken, isolated, uneducated, hated, hungry the message is your troubles will pass and you can learn to love yourself. Lifes true goal is to obtain the gifts of good health, faith, wealth, accomplishment, wisdom, and of course love. Love of self is possible and beautiful
It was an impressive list of needy and broken people. But then you offer a solution which seemed quite unconvincing to me. Broken people do not know how to love until someone loves them would be my response to this. The best person to love them is God Himself through Christ as He is an unbroken, untainted, and enduring example of love. If we look into a mirror with our own spiritual reflection in it then it will be a cracked mirror that shows us a Picasso-like face that is broken and distorted. But God sees us as we really could be and it is His love that can perfectly restore us, fill those empty spaces, and teach us how to love ourselves and others. Love does not heal if it only looks inwards. Love is personal and requires relationships to be activated in us and to bring its healing power to bear.
Thanks for sharing.
