"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together." (Romans 8:16-17 NKJV) We are all children of God. And, as children of God we are all part of a royal family. God values each and every one of us as His children, and He does so equally. We all are hard on ourselves, and maybe others, at some point in our lives. Do not let anyone tell you that you are anything less than what you are in God's eyes. Don't buy into it and don't believe it. It's not true. And, don't sell your own self short. Each and everyone one of us, whether an animal or human, was created by God and is extremely special, valuable, and important to God. We need to remember that about ourselves and about each other. We need to treat each other as a valued and important person in high esteem, and just importantly we need to treat ourselves that way. We are all a child of God and dearly loved! AMEN!!
