But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.Romans 5:8
So, let me ask you a question, are you like me and don’t think you are doing very well with life? Perhaps feel like in some ways you are a failure?
I have such high expectations of myself that I rarely meet. I frequently see problems in myself and can be a brutal self-critic. How about you?
But God takes a different view on me and you. We are his creation (let that sink in!) and God thinks so highly of us that he sent his son, Jesus Christ to die for us.
I have lost a son, my sweet boy Judah at 3 years old. I cannot imagine another sacrifice more significant or difficult than losing a child. God’s action on the cross is enormous and extraordinary. God loves us THAT much.
So, I need to remember that when I am hard on myself, if God thinks I am worth loving, maybe I should also love who I am.
