Do You Know the Love of God?

        Many years ago I read somewhere that the great Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau did not believe in God and I felt sad for him.  I just hope that he did change his mind before he died in 1991.  In the documentary on the Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter, who was definitely one of the world's best, I was again saddened to hear him say that he did not like himself.  God gave him the genius, yet he had such low self-esteem. 
        A good test question: Do you like yourself?  If your answer is in the negative, then you don't know the love of God yet.
