"But He would withdraw to deserted places and pray.”
#WorldMentalHealthDay can help raise awareness about the importance of self-care. But does this mean self-indulgence? Is taking care of your health a selfish thing that Christians should avoid? Aren't we called to sacrifice everything for God and neighbor?
We'll look at the example of Jesus Himself and the powerful words of St Isaac the Syrian to see why Christian self-care is actually selfless. Because, when we care for ourselves, it puts us in a position to love more deeply.
This is especially important during the coronavirus pandemic and covid. We can still Be the Bee and Live Orthodoxy even in the toughest times.
