You’re Worth It

Jesus said, “The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:31). So, how are we loving ourselves? It’s important to check in on your “self love” every so often because if we aren’t loving ourselves well, we can’t love others well either. 

Love is expressed through action, not just feeling. I know, the demands of life make you feel selfish when you take a break from studying, working, or taking care of the kids to get “me time.” But when we don’t care for ourselves, all we’re leaving for our loved ones is the leftovers and the most burnt-out versions of us. And there’s nothing loving about that!

If you’re a parent, what does that communicate to your kids about their dignity and worth when they learn by example that self-care isn’t all that important? So, if not for your own sake, do it for those who love you. Spend time indulging yourself in things that inspire you and fill you up so you can live an inspired life. Read a good book. Eat a little sushi. Watch a movie. Work out. Take time to soak in an extra-long shower.

You’re worth it. God thinks so.
