Loving ourselves?

Most everyone agrees that knowing we have value is vital to becoming whole and functioning well. The question then becomes how is that best accomplished?

We hear a lot today about how and why loving and caring for ourselves is necessary and the best way (maybe the only way) to feel good about ourselves.

What if there is someone who knows you and cares about you better than you can care for yourself? Do you think/believe that's possible?

The best self-care is not caring for yourself but letting somebody care for you who knows you and loves you better than you can love yourself.

That would best be done by someone who has infinite knowledge, infinite ability, infinite resources and an infinite desire/love to care for you.

That would also not be you. A finite being cannot meet an infinite need.

Our only challenge is believing God knows and loves us better than we know and love ourselves and entrusting ourselves to his care.
