God Blessed Morning Family!
It is difficult to Love someone who does not Love themselves for the energy they put out contradicts what you see in them. For it is as if they are screaming out for Love but have lost their way in identifying what Love is. Some feel that they are not worthy of Love because of misdeeds in which they have trespassed against others, and some believe they are not worthy because they were told this by those they Love. It is unfortunate that we tend to allow the opinion of man to formulate how we perceive ourselves rather than rely on not only the Word of God but also His actions in which He shows us that as Children of God we are Love. Seeing someone that does not Love themselves purposefully abuse themselves is painful to witness for they are lacking the understanding that in order to Love others you must Love yourself first. Therefore someone that does not Love themselves can truly not Know what it is to Love another. We tend to misinterpret Love as a physical or emotional attachment but it is more than that. For Love is God and when you don't Love yourself you are saying you don't Know God. For to Know God is to Know Love for God is Love. To deny yourself Love is to deny God. "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." 1 John 4:7-8 Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
