SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:


Jesus said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." - Luke10:27

If one had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer: love God, yourself and others - in that order.

Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God and others, but many do not understand that loving oneself is one-third of God's equation. They mistakenly think of it as selfishness or self-aggrandizement.

Joyce Meyer believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God, ourselves and others.

Drawing upon her previous work and teaching series as well as original devotions, the author of Power Thoughts examines the three loves that we've been commanded to exhibit.

My Thoughts:

Love Out Loud is a wonderful little devotional. Each devotion is short, just one page. Each day starts out with a Bible verse and then a commentary about that verse. At the bottom of each page is a short prayer for Loving God, Loving Yourself or Loving Others.  The commentary is meaty and gives you much food for thought that you can ponder over though out your day. The Love Out Loud devotional would make a wonderful gift.
