Never spend time with anyone who tries to put you down or make you feel less than you are.
You are a child of God and as such you were born to magnify His glory and let your light shine.
When Jesus told the story of the missing sheep, some of the people who were listening wiped away a tear because they knew how it feels to be lost among the crowd.
Jesus wanted us to understand that we have a Father who sees and cares for each one of his children—that we are all equally valuable to him.
No one is useless to God. No one, at any point in his life, is useless to God—not a little child, not the unattractive, not the clumsy, not the tired, not the discouraged. God uses his children.
Our value is inherent—it’s not based on the Ph.D. after our name or the amount of money in our bank account.
We have value simply because we are His children.
In the eyes of God, every human has value simply because he or she is the creation of the almighty God.
You belong to God’s eternal dream. Now you may not feel motivated, you may not feel like you have a reason for living, but you must renew your mind with the immovable fact that you are a part of a commissioned people—you have a reason to be alive.
There is an eternal purpose. There is a great river of God’s purpose that is moving toward an eternal home with him. You can’t stop God’s purpose.
God’s purpose is greater than you are, and if you are God’s child, nothing is going to slow down God’s purpose for your life in 2013.
