For the past few days of 2019, I’ve been seeing posts upon posts of New Year’s Resolution and most of what I’ve read on Facebook, Twitter and blogs is this: “Self love.” It is literally all over the social media these days and everywhere, people were saying that this year, they will fall in love with themselves.
First, I want to tell you that I have really nothing against self love and self care. We are, after all, created in God’s image—we should really learn to love ourselves—including our flaws and all our imperfections and even me would love to do it this year. But the thing is, before you become so focused on loving yourself, I want us to look on what He really said about it and let us first examine our hearts so we will not stumble on doing it. Remember, we are not our own but we are bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) so we should do what we want to do for Him and Him alone.
