Do you know what self-love is? The dictionary gives significant definitions, though it does not give the foundational truth of self-love.

Think about this, we love (each other) because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). Therefore, to love others and have self-esteem, we must accept, comprehend, and exhibit the love God first gave us. The world is filled with insecure, self and culture-obsessed, and emotionally needy people because they have no true identity or love- of self and God. True love comes from above, and to activate and emit this love in one's life, one must abide by specific laws (Galatians 5:22; Proverbs 1:7; Romans 13:10; 1 Corinthians 13:13). Yet, these guidelines are reasonable and edifying for your spirit and person; they are not burdensome or harsh. When we chase after this divine love, praying to embody it, only then will our self-esteem become perfected through Christ. This extraordinary love is not superficial, arrogant, or vain, but it IS considerate, patient, enduring, fulfilling, and absolute (to name a few). This Christ-like love produces a confidence that is unknown to the world. To sum it up, there is no way one can truly love themselves if one does not have reverence for the Almighty and has not accepted His perfect love. And, there is no way you can love another unless you love yourself (Ephesians 5:29-30; Psalm 139:14; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7; Proverbs 31:30).
