Grace Yourself

Give yourself some grace. Many today find it very difficult to love themselves. Some self-help gurus would suggest taking a personal inventory of your positive traits, doing something good for others, stop being so hard on yourself or learn to live with it. While each of these may serve to ease your mind, why not just grace yourself.

Love is a grace you bestow on someone, not because they deserve or earn it, but because you decide to give it. Why not give it to yourself? Don’t try to earn your love or look for reasons to love yourself. DECIDE to love yourself. Hey, no offense, but if our perfect God can love us in all our imperfections then we can also – through Jesus Christ. Just look at yourself through the magnifying glass of the cross.

And remember, you are loved – by God, by me and by millions of born again Christians. You might as well love yourself too. (It will enable you in loving others as well.)

Romans 5:8
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
