For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: Ephesians 5:29 (KJV) Self-love is not being selfish or self-centered on the contrary it is the place where we can develop genuine love and learn how to love people. To love your neighbor as yourself requires a first-class course on self-love. Learning to Love yourself. The first thing required to Love yourself is an intentionally resolve to walk in self-worth. You are worth so much and you must believe it. Jesus so valued you that he stepped into humanity to die for you. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 1 John 3:1 (KJV) I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:14 I am not advocating for pride. You must be humble but celebrate who you are. In Christ, You are God's chosen in the beloved. You are blessed. You are God's righteousness. You are light and salt of the earth. You are the city on a hill. You are highly favored. You are the head and not the tail. You are beautiful all round. So rejoice and be in Bliss. Celebrate God's masterpiece and workmanship that you are. I love you. Shalom!
