If anyone takes a human life, that person’s life will also be taken by human hands. For God made human beings in his own image. – Genesis 9:6 (NLT)
At the end of today’s verse we see an important truth: God made human beings in His own image. We are made in the image of God. What does that mean? It means that we have value.
It’s easy to look in the mirror and find lots of imperfections. It’s easy to compare yourself to your friends and feel that you’re not as smart or not as funny as they are. As a result, you can often begin to feel bad about yourself.
Today’s Truth: I Am Important to God
The truth is, you might not be as funny or smart as your friends, but that doesn’t mean that your life is not important. To God, you matter. He has a plan for you, a purpose for your life.
There are people who need what you bring to the world. So don’t let yourself be lied to and feel that you don’t matter. You do. You’ve been made in the image of God!
Speak the truth: My life is important. I have been made by my creator for a purpose!
