“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!”

What love the Father has lavished on us indeed! We are His children. Let our identity be found solely in Him – who has loved us so much that to be called His.

Where is it that you put your hope? Where do you find your value? Is it in your success? Failure? Body size? Numbers on a scale? Scars? Accomplishments?

When you think about your identity – what thoughts cross your mind? Is it, ” What do you like?” or “What do you want?” or even “Who do you want to be?” When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

It is not your body size, the number on the scale, your successes, your failures, your accomplishments, your scars, your status, your deeds, or even what you see in the mirror looking back at you. THAT IS NOT WHO YOU ARE. You are not your age, your physical beauty – or lack thereof. You are not your flaws, your bank account status, or your profession.

You are God’s children. You are HIS – nothing else defines you.

“Your worth is found in God.
