Emptiness comes from selfishness. Selfishness results from a sense of insecurity; and a sense of insecurity results from lack of faith in God’s abounding love and mercy. Most of us know that there is a God and that He loves us. However, many of us have never internalized the full extent of His love. Furthermore, we have never made His type of love, our love. For example, God accepted humiliation, suffering and death in order to compensate for our sins, which we committed against Him. In other words, He the victim compensated for our offenses that we the offenders committed against Him. Although our sins against Him included unfaithfulness, betrayal, abuse, torture and killing; because, of His infinite love and mercy, He sacrificed His life for us. In human thinking this is absurd; because, we generally punish, hurt or hate those who hurt us and ask them to compensate for the wrong they have done to us. Furthermore, we abandon those who are unfaithful to us and betray us. Now, if we can only internalize these facts, we would realize the depth of His love for us and feel secure even in our worst tragedy. We would therefore, not be concerned about our own interest. This would make us less selfish. Furthermore, if we can love others like He loves us, by loving and helping those who are unfaithful to us, betray us, abuse us, torture us or try to kill us, we would be totally free of selfishness and find fulfillment in life. We would also then be true followers of Jesus.
