See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him…1st John 3:1(NIV)
Often times we may get upset and unhappy the way people treat us. We wonder why people treat us a particular way. We see ourselves in a particular way and think – “why can’t we be treated for the value that we have ?”.
When we keep seeking for to be treated in a particular way and keep getting treated contrary to our expectation, there is a tendency to start believing that we are the way we are treated. We then think may be we do not deserve what we always thought we deserved.
We seem okay with settling with whatever we get while low self esteem sets in and we start to act based on the way we now see ourselves. The condition we find ourselves is now a place were you are doing what you don’t want to do but think you have no option.
The scriptures above brings to light a very encouraging insight – God’s love. The understanding of God’s love for us is the key to understanding what our worth is and how we ought to view ourselves to experience the life he planned for us. The honest truth is this – No one can treat you the way you should be treated until they know you and what you really possess within.
Be encouraged to know that you are greatly loved of God and you are of great value in his sight. I pray that as we contemplate on this truth, a consciousness of our worth comes from God’s perspective of us and not the way people respond to us. God Bless You.
