love me for me

February 8th - 15th, 2015

The quest to love and be loved consumes tens of thousands of hours of every person’s lifetime. It often includes the harshest and happiest memories, the most surprising and upsetting moments, and it typically has overwhelming influence on your disposition toward yourself. While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to love someone and hoping for their love in return, allowing their love (or lack thereof) to define your life’s quality is dangerous and wrong. Only the love of God should show us our worth, and it is only when we view ourselves according to his love do we realize the value we truly have.

In this brief series we’ll apply that principle both to people who want somebody to love and to those who want somebody to love them. This is a great series to consider inviting someone who has struggled with love to be encouraged by their loving God.
