For many of us, we grew up learning that the second greatest commandment was to love your neighbor as yourself. But what does it mean to love yourself? If you've been rejected from communities for any reason, love for self instead of blame or sadness can be hard to come by.
As we approach Valentine's Day, let's explore what love means when we give love to ourselves. How can we fill ourselves up with the love of God that leads us to abundant life? Can it be something that we not only give away but something we lavish on ourselves? And what if we work FROM love, instead of FOR love?
In this 10-day devotional, we're going to focus on those last two words of the greatest commandments: "as yourself." What does it mean to really love the bodies God gave us? How can we appreciate all the beautifully weird things that God gave us? And what the heck is love? And what does it have to do with it?
Glad you're here, beloved.
