Everyone who has ever lived and will be conceived is important: we are all part of the whole and what we do, or do not do, affects everyone else. Yes we see the importance of great inventors, leaders and thinkers yet, we can not dismiss the value of any person doing any kind of work, or, just being part of the biosphere. In a universe vast beyond human comprehension are we important on the cosmic scale? Philosophers say we ourselves are the universe cognisant of itself. You may think this message is beyond your comprehension, or it just does not apply to your everyday life but you are.
God has a purpose for you; he wants you to chose what is good and right with the freewill he has granted – but he will not force you to comply. You are free to make your own way by making your own choices from moment to moment. God loves his creation and God especially loves people; this includes you. The Bible reveals many truths but the value placed on people is the greatest truth so often forgotten. Seek God. Seek God especially if you are struggling with self worth and can not believe you have a purpose: you have worth and you have a purpose.
For God So Loved the World John 3:16 (ESV)
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
You are Important Matthew 10: 26 – 33
26 “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. 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.[g] 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?[h] 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.
