Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone has the potential to give something back. (Princess Diana, late British Princess of Wales)

We hear a lot about self-image, but it’s really self-worth we need to understand. As the princess suggests, every person has value and is capable of making a worthy contribution to society, given the opportunity to do so. When we think of other people, especially those who may seem to be unworthy, remember their value as a person.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:27).
