Love yourself as God loves you.

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)

What do you think Jesus meant when he said to love others as we love ourselves?
What is the you of you?
Stop to feel your pulse
Life is running through you
Life is a gift of God
Feel your fingertips
Look at the pattern on them
Each is unique
You are unique
You are made in God's image
You are loved by the Creator who is proud of you, the created.
Look again at the mirror
Ask God to show you the real you, the you without image, the you that God sees.

Peace and love,


"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. " (1 John 4:9-10)
