Be Love(d): Love Ourselves

February 13, 2023

In all three passages we hear the same thing “love others as yourself”. This is a resounding message of Scripture that we find in both the Old and New Testaments. We often use these passages to remind us that we are to love and serve others, and that is certainly true, but we are to love others “as yourself”. If we don’t love ourselves and who God created us to be, then how can we love others “like” we love ourselves? While continuing to grow and become better followers of Jesus, we must also love the unique individual that we were created to be.
