Pray to be Loving
Day 18 - Love. Jesus declared, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the FIRST and greatest commandment. And the SECOND is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'" Matthew 22:37-40
We are to love because Christ is love. We are to love ourselves because if we don't love ourselves, we can't love our neighbors. Pray to be loving. If you struggle with loving yourself... identify what it is you don't love about you (make a list) and get to the root of the problem... because when you love you, you can love others and be loving towards them.
We are living in a time where there is a lot of natural disasters, wars, tensions flaring. Where people need love, they need to know that their life isn't over, they need others to be compassionate towards them but if we are stuck on ourselves... we can't do that. Pray to be loving. Pray to love yourself, so you can love your neighbors because it's important for us to show love to all that we encounter for many are going through so much and they need that Christ-like love to be shown towards them. Pray to be loving and I pray that you love yourself enough to love others as Christ loves you. Keep striving to be the best you.... you can be! I love you.
