A second is equally important: ‘Love neighbor as yourself’. – Matthew 22:39
When we first look at this verse we know to love our neighbor. We know to love others like Jesus loves them. ( John 15:12)
Looking at the verse for second time I have notice that you have to love yourself before loving others. The verse states to love your neighbor as yourself.
If you do not love yourself how can you love others?
I think it is so hard for people to show love to others , because they have trouble loving themselves. We fear what others will think of us. We are wrapped up in our own insecurities.
Loving ourselves more can help us open up to others. We wouldn’t worry about what others think about us so much.
So how to love yourself ?
Love is patient , Love is kind – 1 Corinthians 13:4
Be patient with yourself. When you are trying to achieve something be patient with yourself. When you fall and make a mistake be patient with yourself. Give yourself time to grow and learn new things. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself ,but instead give it to God.
Be kind with yourself. Remind yourself who you are. You were created by The Creator. He called you a masterpiece. (Ephesians 2:10)
