Inspired by Psalm 131

God boiled down all the laws down to two: first, Love God; second, love others as you love yourself. That’s all fine and good, true to the core, but I’ve never honestly learned how to live out the last four words: “…as you love yourself.” Sometimes I love myself too much. Most of the time, I don’t love myself at all. This isn’t a ground-breaking confession, it’s just the simple truth common to us all. Could it be that one of the longest, hardest battles is learning how to love myself as God loves me? Here’s a beautiful reminder from one of my favorite singers, Andrew Peterson.

Perhaps this video could be titled better, but the core message is beautiful. I’ve come to admire this poet over the years, even though we traffic in different genres. May it bless you too as you “extend your hand in the same vein as the pierced one.”
