The Bottom Line
God loves you exactly as you are.
Read These Scripture Passages
“So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them... God saw all that He had made and said, ‘It is very good.’” GENESIS 1:27-31 (NIV)
“‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” MATTHEW 22:39 (NIV)
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him." 1 JOHN 3:1 (NIV)
Ask These Questions
- What do you think other people think about you?
