“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart . . . soul . . . mind and . . . strength. . . . Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)
Jesus commanded all who would follow him to “love your neighbor as yourself,” but for most of my life I ignored the last two words of the commandment. I did not love myself. I thought I had to be perfect to be acceptable, and I didn’t know how to forgive...
Because God loves me, I will treat myself with kindness and love.

The Upper Room lifts the spirits of residents I serve as a correctional chaplain. Christians and non-Christians read the devotions, reminding them of an alternative path to a loving God that will walk alongside them through the good and ugly of life.”
The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry provides military, VA hospital, and prison chaplains copies of the daily devotional for their ministry. Give today to support the Chaplains’ Ministry.
