“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 NIV

 

“Love yourself”. We’ve heard this many times right? The Bible agrees too! A lot of people struggle with their own bodies, insecurities, not feeling confident, good enough and so on. We are often too focused on our flaws rather than our strengths and our talents. Not feeling confident and feeling insecure is a completely human thing but we have to remember why not to do so. From the beginning of time when God created mankind, He created us according to His own image. Both male and female, we are all the same as His own image. This we have to keep in mind, anytime we feel like we’re not good enough, not confident, insecure. Won’t we be disrespecting our God’s creation when we see ourselves as not good? In Genesis 1:29 ”God saw all that he had made, and it was very good”; we are all good creations! How can we love our God that we can’t see with our own eyes if we can’t love ourselves that we can see, feel, touch? Start loving ourselves, because we are all created ever so perfectly, like He is perfect.

Have you really loved yourselves?
