Loving Yourself

rose free

Loving yourself is one of the required elements in your Christian walk; and why?, ‘because the Word of God says’, in Leviticus 19:18, “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself; I am the Lord”.  The Word of God says, love others as we love ourselves.  Now this may seem a bit odd to you to love your neighbor even if you don’t know them; as much as you love yourself.

We must be neighborly and kind to others, and even if they seem strange or may not be living as a Christian, we ought to love them; not only secretly but outwardly by saying hello at least.  We ought to love them enough to pray for them.  Keep in mind that God’s Word says to love them as we love ourselves.  Seemingly God is saying that it’s o.k. to love ourselves.  We must have self love, an inner love of ourselves in order to express an outward love.  We appear happy and our countenance is beautiful when we love ourself.

Proverbs 10:12 says, “Hatred stirreth up strifes; but love covereth all sins.”  So love yourself and the love that you have for yourself and for others may cover your sins.  God is love and love is powerful.  It is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit, who is God.  Whether you have gone through stress, pain, loneliness, illnesses, trauma, heartache; just love yourself.  Be in the eye of the storm, the Word of God; and love yourself.
