MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: I saw a clip the other day of a well known motivational speaker. He was talking about how to become a person of VALUE.
VALUE: merit, worth, importance.
Listen…I've operated and participated in thick, thick cultures where value and worth were assigned to you according to title and performance. I've watched the effects this WORDLY mentality has on people...women in particular. It's rough stuff....this thing of people feeling they have no value. Feeling that if they could only do better they would have more worth.
Here’s the TRUTH. You do not BECOME a person of value. Your worth and merit and importance are not based on what you do. You do not become more valuable as you climb the ladder. You do not become more valuable as you add on volunteer positions. You do not become more valuable as you try to keep a perfect house. You do not become more valuable as you take more bible studies. No. No. No. All you have to do to become a “person of value” is wake up to the TRUTH that you already are.
I love you.
I’m always trying to be “better” when the TRUTH is that I’m already the person I want to be. I just need to live that way. 💙
