Are you ever tempted to think that you have to present a flawless public persona for God and others to respect you? Maybe it isn’t respect you long for, but acceptance, love, or feeling valued. The common human tendency is to believe that our value is based on performance. But God—who knows us better than we know ourselves—loves us unconditionally. We are His and He is for us. Our humanity (with all its imperfections) does not prevent God from loving us. Neither does it keep Him from coming to our aid and redeeming our mistakes when we humbly call out for help. Where do you need to hear this good news today?
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8
Prayer: God, thank You for loving me. Banish the fear and pride that keep me from trusting You and Your love. Help me lead like Jesus, in whose name I pray, amen.
