Today’s Reading: Romans 5:1-11 Version – ESV
Many people hate themselves for not having enough money, or for being disqualified in a contest, or for having done something wrong in their lives. There are people who hate themselves for having missed an opportunity to succeed in life. There are others who hate their physical appearance, the texture of their hair or the color of their skin.
Nothing in the world should be cause for you to be upset with yourself and spend your life suffering. The problem is that we live in a world where values are twisted. Therefore it is generally believed that the welfare and happiness comes from exterior beauty or the assets a person owns. This is a big mistake!
You are worth what you are. What counts is not to have but to be. If others do not think this way, remember this: God thinks this way. He created you to live a useful and happy life.
No matter how much money you have, the failures you’ve had in life and how you are. God loves you. God accepts and understands your misfortunes.
With the experience of God’s love in Christ Jesus, you will see that, Yes it is worth living!
