“Love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:31
Could that actually be a biblical concept?
We hold on to a lesser view of ourselves when we don’t live a life of intimate communion with God. Loving ourselves will continue to feel forced or awkward if intimacy with God hasn’t been our top priority.
Lord, help me to see and appreciate the way that You have created me and to love myself so that I can love others well. Amen.
