In order for you to love someone as God loves his servants, we must love ourselves. Many people are looking for love but don’t love their selves. We must have a set of core values and beliefs and stand firm when situations arise. These values are usually instilled into you at a young age. You will know what you will accept and will not. These core values will determine which type of friends you will associate yourself with. Groups of friends have similar ideas and are likeminded in what they believe in. The saying is true, birds of a feather flock together. If you are a gossiper, an instigator, liar, cheater, smoker, or drinker, more times than likely you will attract the same type of people. But if we display our characteristics of friendly, caring, loving, thoughtful, and Christ-like values, we will have friends that will always be by your side. If we love ourselves in this manner and hang around the right crowd, we can truly say with confidence that we are treating our neighbor as if we would treat ourselves.
