Last night at youth we learnt about loving others as yourself. The main verse we looked at was...
"....You shall love your neighbour as yourself.
I have always wondered what it meant by saying "as yourself". Because I don't love myself, so I thought until last night at youth where I learnt what it means to love yourself. It means to care for yourself. Like when you get money who is the first person you think of spending it on? Who dresses you? Who does your hair or brushes your teeth? Who gets the most effort in your day? I bet most of them are ourselves. You don't have to care for other people like the questions above, but put the same amount of time and effort into others as you do for yourself.
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
So it is saying sacrifice what you want to do or what you are doing to make others happy. Don't always think about yourself.
