Psalm 8:5 reminds us that we were the unique creation of God. Each of us bears in our body the image of God, and are therefore, important not only to God, but also to all of the created realm. God created us for a purpose (Psalm 8:6-8) and as such we are to carry out that purpose for Him each day. When we look in the mirror, the person looking back at us is special. Do not allow those around you to shape your opinion of yourself, nor allow them to make you think you are less than what God views you to be. Always remember that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to provide redemption for you. He did not provide opportunity for animals to repent, nor the trees or grass around you. Jesus died for YOU AND ME! The reason for this is the importance that God places on all people. It matters not if you are as smart as the people around you. It matters not if you are deemed by society as more valuable than others. It doesn’t even matter what you think about yourself. Jesus Died to provide salvation for those who will receive it. We are not worthy to receive it because we are good, we are declared worthy because of how God created us. Live in the power of that knowledge. Understand how God has created you, and allow that understanding to shape your view of who you are before God.
