Know your worth and value

Know your worth and value

Do you realize how valuable you are to God today?

Some people measure their value and worth according to feedback they get from others. For instance, if their boss says, “Hey, great job!” or their husband replies, “That was really thoughtful and helpful of you, thank you very much,” one might feel pretty good about themselves. But if they get the opposite kind of response, such as, “That was a horrible thing you did,” or “You could have done better than that,” or no response is received at all, the effect can feel demoralizing and discouraging.

So, the first rule is, don’t let your sense of self-worth and value be affected by what other people say or don’t say. Go to God first and see what God sees in you.

God loves you beyond any kind of human love you can imagine. He created you for a reason, to spread His love around, to express His intelligence and wisdom, to be of useful service, and to shine His light wherever you are. You can do these things no matter what anyone else is saying or doing. It doesn’t matter about them. What matters is what’s going on between you and God.

Jesus Christ had a clear sense of worth and value. The social and political leaders of his community conspired to demean him, devalue him, disparage him, discredit him and destroy him, but he didn’t let their evil appraisal of him devalue his knowledge of worth and value to God. He knew he didn’t live for them. He lived for God, and God had important work for him to do. He persisted in his divinely appointed work no matter what others around him did to stop him.

You have divinely appointed work too! And it’s all about reflecting God’s presence, living true to your spiritual selfhood and fulfilling your potential as an intelligent, able and capable child of God. What other people think cannot build you up or tear you down. What God thinks is what matters. And God thinks you’re terrific!

Live true to what God sees in you. Be everything God designed you to be. Live up to God’s expectations. Be true to God first and above all. Love without limit. Live without bounds.

You are a spiritual being living a spiritual life that can never be quantified or measured in a material, social, political, or economic way. You are never a product of what other people think or don’t think. You are what God made you to be, and God made you to be an absolutely incredible, magnificent, one-of-a-kind perfect, indispensable, wholly needed, and beloved member of His family.

Your value and worth is beyond anything the human mind can comprehend. It’s infinitely greater! Love it, cherish it, appreciate it and live it. It’s your divine right and ability.

    Yes God’s opinion about us, is the most important. We always do not come across people who will think well of us. They may try to run us down, form poor opinion about us, rash judge us.. We should not be disturbed or hurt….Rather they should be sympathized….They need our prayers…We should see them as God sees them, loving and lovable. Christ Jesus always focused on His mission on earth and went about doing good, irrespective of the response he got..Even on the Cross he said “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”

    As long as our Father Mother God knows us, loves us, holds us in high esteem…it doesn’t matter in the least, what others think or say or judge..We know that “God is the great I AM. The all-seeing, all-knowing, all-acting, all-wise and all-loving”. “If God be for us, who can be against us.” The all-knowing and all-loving God is the source of all good. Good does not flow from any human source….be it your boss or any other relative or friend. Good comes directly from God. So our job is to follow the path Christ trod….love all, do good to all without expectations, and see all as God sees…perfect, complete, loving and kind. Where love is expressed…God dwells there… and where God dwells..there is happiness, peace and prosperity. Thanks be to God forever and ever..Amin.

    Thanks for the great reminder of why we’re really here in the first place! God put us here for a reason, and no one is left out.

    Thank you, Evan! This is so uplifting! As they say…..”Your worth comes from your Higher Power!” It’s just so important to acknowledge our spiritual value in God’s eyes, in God’s ears, in God’s mouth and in God’s heart and soul. I’ve been working to know that all my senses, memory included, cannot break down, deteriorate, or become less just because of several more trips around the Sun! Does God age? No! Then neither can his expression……that’s Us! Love to All!

    A natural effect of chemicalization is our thoughts are filled with inspiration
    which lead to right action to produce good result… thus what anybody thinks of these results i do not take personally ….
    If my actions are based on thought formed from mortal mind… personal and selfish… i suppose i would receive criticism from time to time and i would then try to recognize the source within myself and learn from it… that is learn to always try to base my actions on the highest most harmonious thoughts i can discern from Mind.and therefore take the criticism as a gift of learning…. in the mean time i will always remember the following

    We are the perfect
    Expression…
    Of the perfect
    Idea….
    Gods idea,
    We are now,
    Have always been,
    Will forever be.

    Thank you Evan and SV Fans! I still find that I have much to learn in my studies. I have had so much love for everyone and everything that I have done my best to express however I’m not sure that they have understood the hint of laughter that I have added. I am so thankful to all of you and God for your constant words of encouragement and your ability to not judge.

    Thank you, dear Evan for your inspiring SV which is so comforting. It is very freeing , as we are only under control of God, we come from God and we are what God made us of and for. We express only God, Good and nothing else, whatever others say to us or think of us erroneously. We live and move and have our being in the great Love of our God! Grateful that we have this precious Pearl of Christian Science.
