Perfect, unchangeable, unwavering love is the only thing that will bring about emotional stability. Being loved is being valued. The deepest need we all share is the desire to be valuable, i.e. loved. Most of us attempt to find love, i.e. being valuable by looking to other people. While that can definitely meet certain needs, it is inconsistent and sometimes conditional.
When people lack that deep sense of worth they do things in an attempt to be loved. The problem is when we have to perform to be loved it is inconsistent and conditional. In other words, we only feel valued as long as we perform. And when that other person extends value for us we know it will go away when we can no longer perform. It is a horrible life of codependent behavior that always ends in disappointment and the pain of rejection!
God is the only One who will ever give us 100%, unconditional love. Why? More than any other reason, love is God’s core nature. It’s not just what He does, it’s who He is! He has value for us even when our behavior does not make us valuable. It is this kind of love that makes us emotionally stable.
