  • French abbot Bernard of Clairvaux said there are four levels of love. First, the lowest level is to love myself solely. (That's not love. That's being self-absorbed.) Second, to love you for my sake. (That's using people.) Third, to love you for your sake. (That's more like it. Selflessness.) But the highest level of love, he said, is to love myself for your sake. Didn't Jesus say to love your neighbor as yourself? Knowing you're valuable so you can give yourself away sounds like Jesus to me.

So what’s your level of love?
