We love because He first loved us. – 1 John 4:19 (HSCB)
If you were honest, would you say you liked the person you are? Or are there some parts about yourself that you’d like to change?
Most of us would say there are things about us that we don’t really like that much. Maybe we compare ourselves to someone who is funnier than we are and feel like there’s something wrong with ourselves.
It’s easy to compare yourself with others and feel like you don’t really measure up.
Today’s Challenge: Learn to Like You
Today’s challenge is for you to learn to like who you are. A good place to start is by making a list of things you do well. Maybe you’re a good listener or a true friend. Grab a piece of paper or use notes on your phone and start writing out some things that you excel at.
Then take that list and put it somewhere that you will see it. Look at it each day and remind yourself that you have strengths and value. Those strengths might be different than others, but that’s ok. God made you the way you are for the specific call he has on your life.

So today, if you’ve struggled with liking yourself, remind yourself of today’s Bible verse. God loved us before we loved Him. He loved us so much He was willing to risk everything to get to know you. You have value because God loves you. That will never change. So take comfort today knowing that you are loved!
