Where to Find Your True Self-Worth

June 6

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”           

John 3:16

Years ago, Newsweek magazine ran an article on what they called the “feel-good movement” in America.  It was titled "The Curse of Self-Esteem: What's Wrong with the Feel-Good Movement." This movement essentially stresses the importance of self-esteem and self-worth. But the article explored why studies were showing that this way of thinking was failing our society.

The article concluded that feeling good about ourselves doesn’t satisfy our deepest philosophical and spiritual needs. It’s superficial, and causes people to attempt to live up to impossible standards, setting them up for ultimate disappointment as their sense of self-worth crashes down.

This only brings us back to the original problem: people today are sick from hating themselves. And no amount of thinking positively can fix that. So how can we cure this sickness? Well, it goes beyond what we think into the very core of who we are.

The key to knowing your true worth is by seeing yourself how God sees you in Christ. To Him, you’re not worthless. In fact, He loved you so much that He sent His only Son to die on a cross for your sin so that you can have eternal life. Once we begin to understand who we are in Christ, that’s when we’ll know our true self-worth!
