“‘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.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
