"...The fact is, we do not hate ourselves, nor do we need to learn to love ourselves more. We do need to learn to deny ourselves so we can do something which does not come naturally - to truly love God and others. Our problem isn't so much a ''poor self image'' as it is ''poor God image''. Our real need isn't for a higher view of ourselves but for a higher view of God. When we see and esteem Him rightly, then we will esteem ourselves rightly - as objects of His immense love, whom He has chosen to rescue and redeem from our sin by His grace. It doesn't get any better than that!"
~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss, The Quiet Place
"No one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church."
~ Ephesians 5:29
May each of you have a truly blessed Thursday praising the name of our mighty Lord and King who loves and cares for us so deeply that He sent His only Son to die for sins...He is so good to us!
