Bem-aventurados os mansos, porque eles herdarão a terra; Bem-aventurados os que têm fome e sede de justiça, porque eles serão fartos; Bem-aventurados os misericordiosos, porque eles alcançarão misericórdia; Bem-aventurados os limpos de coração, porque eles verão a Deus; Bem-aventurados os pacificadores, porque eles serão chamados filhos de Deus; Bem-aventurados os que sofrem perseguição por causa da justiça, porque deles é o reino dos céus; Bem-aventurados sois vós, quando vos injuriarem e perseguirem e, mentindo, disserem todo o mal contra vós por minha causa.(Mt.5)

To love God absolutely. Nothing and no one can be put in God's place!!!

To love God absolutely. Nothing and no one can be put in God's place!!! 

 Three great idols must be banished from the life of a child of God: clinging to material goods, clinging to people and clinging to oneself. The worst of them, in fact, is the search for yourself at all costs and relentlessly. Without overcoming himself, that is, without giving up his own will to live according to the will of God, man will be filled with idols, because himself becomes the source of all idolatry. c) To love others in a total way (to make one's life a gift for the other's life). The important fact here concerns loving out of love for oneself. Now, loving yourself is contrary to selfishness, which is lack, emptiness, lack of love for yourself, attachment to yourself). Loving yourself is the same as discovering yourself a gift from God, a child in the Son, image and likeness of the Lord. Only from yourself, recognizing yourself as a true gift, can you finally love the other. In addition, it should also be noted that if each one does for others what he wants for himself, surely all will be blessed in the same way. Loving your neighbor as yourself is always wanting the best for him. 3. Jesus concludes, showing, on the other hand, that there is nothing new in this answer, because all this is already found in the OT. The new fact is found in the possibility of meeting Him, since the Kingdom of God is there, present in Jesus Christ, and that master of the law is not far from such a kingdom because he already has a notion of love for God and neighbor. However, to live it worthily, you need to approach Jesus, meet Him, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, the Father's Word for the salvation of the world, the perfect Priest, at the same time a victim perfect, who offered the perfect sacrifice, once and for all, for the salvation of mankind. 4. The encounter with Christ will enable those who seek him to know the truth about the most authentic meaning of love, a word so worn out today. Jesus teaches that to love is self-giving, it is self-giving, it is making oneself a gift for the other, it is emptying oneself, so that the other may be fulfilled, have peace and salvation. He himself went through the emptying of himself from creation, through the incarnation, the cross and, in a very special way, food of eternal life for those who are his. So, for Jesus Christ, much more than loving your neighbor as yourself, it's loving the way he loved. This is simply the most important detail in Holy Scripture and the entire Christian life.
