Has someone called you a lost cause? A failure? Has someone dismissed you as insignificant? Don’t listen to them. Let me repeat that. “Don’t listen to them!” They don’t know what they’re talking about. You were conceived by God before you were conceived by your parents. You were loved in heaven before you were known on earth. You aren’t an accident.
When you say yes to God you are being made into God’s image. In the eyes of God you are worth dying for. Let this truth define the way you see yourself. Let this truth define the way you see other people. Every person you see was created by God to bear his image and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. This is God’s plan. This is God’s promise. And he will fulfill it!
