Seek Health

 

Throughout Scripture we see God take a keen interest in humans being kind to themselves and compassionate to one other. It comes out clearly with Jesus when he tells us that to love others well means we first know what it means to love ourselves well (Matt 22:37-39). It’s normalized to deny your own needs so you can care for others in the church, but that creates a cavernous and hollow person. We are made in God’s image and we’re wired to care for ourselves and seek to become healthier people spiritually, emotionally, and physically (1 Cor 6:19-20; 3 John 1:2).
