1. You are worth more than gold! How does that make you feel?
2. Words from people can really hurt and sometimes lies get spread about you that are not true. What can you do about it if this happens? You should remember that you are worth more than what?
3. What is more important...what is on the inside and how you act or what is on the outside and you look?
No matter what you hear, you are worth more than gold!
Ever felt like your life was really messed up? Maybe you made a mistake and you're feeling like nothing will ever be right again? Well, guess what. You're not the only one who's ever messed up. And there is hope for you and all of us!
Lately I’ve been reading the life of David in my Bible study time, and you know what I realized? He was really messed up. Now, don’t get me wrong, I mean, David was a great guy. He kept the enemies of Israel at bay; even though Saul was trying to kill him, David told Saul he would not kill God’s king.
David was even called a man after God’s own heart. Do you realize all the bad stuff He did?
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalms 139:14
That doesn’t apply to me, Marissa thought as she wheeled herself past the church bulletin board where the weekly verse had been posted.
God made a mistake when He made me and everyone knows it.
"Let me help you through the door." Mrs. Sneed rushed forward to hold the sanctuary door open wide enough to fit Marissa’s wheelchair.
"Thanks," Marissa mumbled. She hated it when people had to help her inside buildings or had to step aside to make room for her stupid hunk of metal with wheels.
Marissa didn’t want help. She wanted to be able to do the things everyone else took for granted.
Wonderfully made? Marissa glared down at her useless legs. Hardly.
