    The Gift of Self Esteem
    Jim Thomson
    Jesus taught us to love our neighbor just like we love ourselves. Often, "love ourselves" is the hardest part of that command. Counselor James Thomson shows us how to embrace The Gift of Self Esteem graciously given by God so that we can truly love ourselves as He wants us to do.

    book excerpt

    Taking Care of Me

    Self-care was difficult. I had to take care of me when I didn’t like me very much. We tend to take the best care of things we value the most. Since I didn’t see much to value in me, I didn’t spend a lot of time and energy on me. Oh, my shoes matched each other, I wore clothes, and didn’t smell bad, but I certainly didn’t eat right or exercise or take vitamins or do things that took good care of me.
    In the New Testament, there is much taught about the concept of stewardship. A steward is a manager who oversees the interests of another person. In an interesting twist, God teaches us that one of our most important duties is to take good care of ourselves. We give ourselves to Him and He in turn hands us back and says, in effect, “Thank you for the gift of you. Please take good care of you because you are very important to Me.”
    Instead I found reasons to take care of anyone else, but me. In these later years, I have come to do better with this, but it is something I have to maintain a strong focus on. What helps is to remember that I am worth the time and energy. By the grace of God, I made a fundamental shift in what I believe is true about me.
