Love others for God

“You cannot achieve that self-containment of being, which is your excellence, if you live in a dependency on others for the fulfillment of your being. God alone can fully answer your need for love, and for that, He asks for your love. He also asks that we love others for His sake. If we love them for ourselves, we try to possess them and make use of them. What is needed instead is to strive for a wholeness of personhood ourselves and to help others to that same fullness of being.”
