The lack of self-worth cannot be remedied by money, recognition, affection, attention, or influence. (Paraphrase of Gary Zukav, American teacher and author)

We’ve all known people who seem to have a very low opinion of themselves. Some of them have tried, as Zukav says, a variety of ways to raise their self-image. Very little probably works until we realize that we were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26, 27) and that gives us inestimable value. And our lives should reflect that image.

And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18).
