“‘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.

Compassion is the heartbeat of humanity. When we are living in our truest, deepest selves we know how to care and connect.”
