"Love thy neighbor as thyself."
The Law of Love.
It's completely fulfilled in Christ.
That is a fact.
And here is another way of looking at it.
Just a suggestion.
The Law of Love might be proportional.
Can you "love thyself" sometimes more than others?
I think so.
And if you can, might that impact your ability to "love thy neighbor?"
Maybe it does.
Therefore, when you are down on yourself.
Perplexed by yourself.
I wonder if God might cut you slack.
In loving your neighbor.
Because you are having a hard time...
Simply loving yourself.
