He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ ” (Luke 10:27; NIV).

Today I wondered
If I should try
To love everyone
Just as much as I love you –
However difficult that is.

But now I see
That’s not the way –
Rather, my aim should be
To love others as myself.

But that’s hard too,
Because I don’t really 
Love myself at all.

Lord, please help me
To love myself much more,
So I can truly love others
As myself.

In Jesus’ name,
