Love others as you love yourself?

14 For everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That’s an act of true freedom. Galatians 5:14

In the scriptural sense, we are instructed to love others as we love ourselves. This is definitely the way that I want to live my life, however, a lot of people read it and interpret it in the sense of how they treat others. I am however, reviewing the context that we must treat ourselves as well as we treat others. I have been guilty of building up my child, my partner, my friend and coworkers while neglecting myself….

I am reminding myself to be mindful of all my relationships and to give them equal attention.

I once read that there are three significant relationships
1. Relationship with God
2. Relationships with others
3. Relationships with self

Let’s make sure that all relationships are receiving an equal amount of quality time.
