Love Myself?

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: The world has a prescription for anyone who feels worthless:

Woman: You just need to learn to love yourself.

Nancy: The truth is, we do love ourselves—immensely! When Jesus tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves, He’s assuming that we naturally love ourselves. The same thing is true when Paul tells husbands to “love their wives as their own bodies.” He says, “No one ever hated his own body.” In other words, husbands are to love their wives as they naturally love themselves.

We’re constantly looking out for ourselves, sensitive to the way others treat us, easily hurt; not because we don’t love ourselves, but because we desperately want to be accepted and treated well.

The way to find purpose and meaning in life is to see ourselves as God does—as sinners in need of His mercy. We find our value by accepting His incredible love.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
