Each of us has an inherent love for ourselves. Sometimes this can be “beaten” out of us, but typically we put ourselves first rather naturally. This Love Your Neighbor as Yourself Scripture Page is based on Matthew 22:39b where Jesus reminded us that we are to love others (our “neighbor”) as much as we love ourselves. This is the essence of sacrificial love and is what gave Jesus the power to endure the cross. It’s a simple truth that children can easily grasp. This scripture poster from Matthew 22:39b can help kids remember Jesus’ words. Encourage them to place this on their wall or mirror.
