Did you ever notice

That we are commanded to love God and neighbor in the Bible, but we are never commanded to love ourselves? Sure, we are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves, but it is presumed that we already love ourselves. It is in fact natural to do so. Our focus shouldn't be on ourselves, but on God and neighbor.

Perhaps we should think about that, the next time we are exhorted to have more self-esteem.
