Matthew 22:37-39 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Loving someone is valuing them. It gives them the opportunity to feel value as well. To feel valuable in our heart is critical in growing spiritually and emotionally.

When we love unconditionally, we are literally validating people, and telling them that they are important.

By loving the Lord, we are valuing Him. By loving our neighbor we are valuing them.
