A Prayer for Friday, October 4, 2013

Self-Love (Part 6)

O God,

Your Son Jesus taught us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

He also taught us that if we love our lives we will lose them and he showed us that when you have the right perspective on your life you will give it away for God’s sake and for others’ sake.

So help us to love our neighbors—to love our friends, our family, and even our enemies—with a love that is always looking for ways to give ourselves away for their sake.

We love ourselves best when we give ourselves away; we love our neighbors best when we give ourselves away for them.

But we really, really need your help if we are going to live that way—so please help us …
