Self Love Is Ordinary

Self-love is so ordinary that Jesus used it as a reference point: Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” When I was in elementary school, the teacher sometimes solved the first problem on a sheet of homework to show us how the others were solved. Jesus used our love for ourselves in the same way. “Notice how you love yourself,” he said, “and love your neighbor in the same way.” (Knowing the Face of God, Tim Stafford, p. 203) [As quoted in 10,000 Sermon Illustrations.
