Today many people seem to have forgotten the great value that God has placed on their lives, reaching the point of living as simple mortals without any self-esteem.
Criticism and bad comments from other people can mark a person’s life and change their perception of themselves, even diminishing their self-esteem and making them feel inferior to others.
It is important to keep in mind that man looks at what is in front of his eyes, but God looks at it in a different way, since He sees beyond the physical and natural: “while others highlight your flaws He looks at the best of you”.
“But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.'” — 1 Samuel 16:7
You belong to royalty
When Christ is accepted as Lord and Savior, in addition to passing from death to life, man passes from being a creature to becoming a child of God and as His child he is also an heir to His kingdom.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” — 1 Peter 2:9
“You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” — Revelation 5:10
You’re more valuable than you think
It is not achievements or merits that make a person valuable, the true value someone may have lies in the great love God has for them.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” — Matthew 10:29-31
“Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!” — Psalm 139:16-17
God has prepared an eternity for you by his side
God has so much love for his children that He has decided to spend eternity with them. He sent his son to prepare the dwelling place for all those who love him and seek him from the heart. You are not just any person, you have been predestined to a beautiful life at the side of your Heavenly Father!
