~ My Value Comes From Being A Spouse And Parent ~
Myth ~ Like many myths this has a significant grain of truth. There is huge significance in being a loving spouse and a good parent.
Reality ~ True significance comes from having been created in the image of God. Have you considered that the same God, who created flowers, birds, animals, mountains, streams, rivers, oceans, and galaxies, looked at you and thought the world needed one of you too?
Scripture ~ “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26-28).
“Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man” (Genesis 9:6).
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well” (Psalm 139:13-14).
Comment ~ Our value comes directly from God and His specific purposes for you. This includes all aspects of your life including the good times and the difficult situations.
If you are interested in understanding God’s specific plan for your life you will enjoy the eBook “GOD’S DESIRE: How To Please God” (https://books2read.com/GodsDesire) which provides a step by step sequence to understanding this important topic.
