The world we live is a tricky one. It is fickle, unpredictable, and can frequently be a tempting one. When we are swept in the seas of judgments and taunts, we often forget where we come from and what truly matters. We trick ourselves into thinking that the world around us is all we need, and that the opinions of others are the only reassurance that we are worthy of recognition. But God made us with the opposite intent: we were made in His image, so that we do not need to live up to others’ images or expectations. He is our Maker, our shepherd, and he loves us so much that He is willing to sacrifice everything in order to bring us back to Him. We truly are lost sheep and coins without Him. You may feel that the world may dictate how you feel and act at times, but today, remember that Christ died so that you may be free from the world’s death-grip on you. You were set free so that you may experience and shape the world that God intended, full of love and grace!
