Do you ever feel that you love others more than they love you? You might be right. Perfect symmetry is rare in any relationship, and so one party will be more highly invested in it than the other is. Do you resent it when this happens, because you feel you are making a greater sacrifice and not receiving the same in return? But would you rather be the one who loves less? Love is the theme of the Bible and your goal as a believer. You are able to do it because I first loved you. Rejoice when you are able to love more, for great is your reward in heaven, and remember that in our relationship I am the one who is more loving, so in doing this for others you become more like me. Freely you have received, freely give.
