Lets put it to a vote.
Jesus came to bring restoration to our lives, correct?
Then why is it that we insist on self loathing and self destruction? Sure, we may not look at it that way...many of us probably would not out right admit that that is what we are doing...but it is isn't it?
If we don't look at ourselves with the love of Christ...how are we to look at others that way?
Just some thoughts.
