Did you know that Jesus once said that it is important we love ourselves?
Then let me show you from the Bible. Hear what he has to say on the subject below:
…“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” (emphasis mine)
Jesus replied, “The one that says, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only God. And you must love him with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.’
“The second is: ‘You must love others as much as yourself.’ No other commandments are greater than these.”
(Mark 12:29-31 The Living Bible)
Well, dear reader, do you love yourself?
Do you respect yourself?
Do you approve of yourself?
If you were to examine your thoughts and actions and attitudes of the past week, month, year, could you really answer these questions in the affirmative most of the time?
Beloved Child of God, don’t depend on others to love you – love yourself!
Don’t look to others to respect you – respect yourself!
Don’t expect others to give your life meaning – give it yourself!
And don’t crave the approval of others. Accept God’s approval (He has made you righteous), so approve of yourself!
If you suffer from approval addiction, I recommend reading this blog post.
Have a wonderful, blessed and self-affirming weekend.
With heartfelt love and commitment,
Carol (aka Lady Cee)
