In The Loop: It's Time To Break Through Hate (February 2015)

Monday, January 26, 2015

Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.” (Romans 13:8, NASB)

The most beautiful woman in the world still sees flaws when she looks in the mirror.

It doesn’t matter her nationality, background, economic status, or race each woman has looked at herself and noticed something she didn’t like. She may have even gone as far as to make physical changes to her body to look flawless. When the feelings about our flaws become intense, we can begin to hate ourselves for the way we look, talk, walk, the jobs we have, and more. We start comparing ourselves to others and sizing up our assets based on theirs.

We may love one thing about ourselves, but loathe something else; and the saddest thing is we can scroll down a social media page and see countless women denigrating their own bodies: “I hate my thighs, my butt, and the way my hair looks,” “I wish I looked like her,” “She's my Woman Crush Wednesday because she has everything that I wish I had,” and the list could go on and on. It isn’t fair to treat ourselves in this way.

How can we LOVE our neighbor as ourselves, when we HATE ourselves?

We also have trouble with hating our neighbors. Do you love them one day, then talk about them like a dog the next? Do you love them 11 months out of the year, but hate them during election season? Do you love serving your church members, but hate serving in your community?

Join us this February 2015, as we BREAK THROUGH HATE! We will be talking about the love-hate relationships we have with ourselves and with others. Love-hate relationships make us so spiritually and emotionally unstable that we cannot be trusted! We will kick off the month, February 4, 2015 with a Midweek Push lesson, and have a Mountain Moving Monday on February 9, 2015 to help us break down a word from the Lord that will build up the love in us!

Let's get ready to break through hate and learn how to LOVE like Christ! Tell a friend and join S.W.A.P. Ministries right here in February so we can all get ready to grow together in the Lord! ☺
