Minute Meditations

God Loved Us into Existence

The more we focus on what God’s plan for us might be, the less we need to concern ourselves with other people’s reactions. Our self-worth is not dependent on other people’s opinions of us. No one else has the power to make us better or worse than we are. Only our choices can do that. We are here because the God who gave us free will also loved us into existence. It is not easy to remember this without some outside validation to help us. That might be why God created us to live in community.
