When someone acknowledges your worth, You are validated and esteemed in God’s eyes. If you come across someone who treats others as worthless, remember that they may have a far deeper need- held captive to the fear of man (vs. fear of God). Those who had the biggest impact on me in Uganda were the children in Pastor Steve’s family. The young people of their household have a deep joy for life and energy that pursues God spontaneously as well as intentionally. They are wonderful big brothers and sisters for the students at the school (more than 1,000 students have been enrolled between the primary and secondary campuses). Pastor Steve and his wife Rosa are wonderful examples of discipling first at home. This blessing has rolled over exponentially to the whole city and surrounding villages.- Teresa #youareworthaSontoGod #fearnot #Heprovidesworth #Heknowsmeintimately
Matthew 10:28-33 (ESV)
.28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.[c] 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?[d] And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
