Table Talk: Caring for Self

This Week In Lightgliders: 
Caring for Self 

Caring for the world around us!


While we've been talking about caring for the people and world around us, it is equally important to care for our own selves. God has given each of us a body, a mind, and a soul to care for.  Sometimes it can be hard to care for and love ourselves when we mess up and hurt others, or disobey our parents or teachers. However, it is important to remember that God loves us and sent Jesus to die for our sins - He cares for us and loves us even though He knows we mess up!

If God cares for us, then we should too!

There are many ways to care for ourselves: eating healthy, taking time to rest, spending time doing things we love, spending time with people we care about, and spending time with God.

A second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
-Matthew 22:39 (NLT)
