You are loved because you are loved because you are lovable. You are lovable because you are loved. Nothing makes you less lovable and nothing makes us less lovable, luckily for us this is not really up for debate. We are loved!
Sometimes we need our own experience because someone else’s just isn’t suffice and we want to know for ourselves. God is ok with this. If God was not ok with this then the next part of the story makes no sense!
