With everything in me, I do my best to love my lord with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. But when it comes to loving my neighbors as myself, that is way harder because I'm not always good at loving myself fully. I too often compare myself to others and feel like I'm not worthy. She's prettier than I am. She's so much better at that than I am.
Yet the truth is I am worthy. I have been given wondrous gifts by God; gifts that are meant to be shared. The truth is when I truly am seen, known and loved, I can love my neighbors as I love myself much easier.
God sees us.
God knows us.
God loves us...
Which is why God sent God's son to die on the cross for each of us.
