Pastor Nate encourages us to be kind to ourselves.
How you see yourself—flaws and mistakes and all—is NOT how God sees you.
Your memory may be haunted by your mistakes. But instead of replaying your mistakes in your mind, remember how God handles your sin.
Even when you have a reason to celebrate, do you find it a struggle to rejoice?
You can forgive the flaws of your friends. So why is it so hard to accept your own imperfections?
You think no one knows your flaws and shortcomings better than you do. So you think that gives you permission to be especially hard on yourself. But Jesus says to stop that negative self-talk.
