Self – Esteem

Have you ever been told this?
 “You’re no good for anything.”

Have you ever told yourself this?
“I’m ugly.” “I’m no good at sports or in my school work.”

Perhaps you have even looked at yourself in the mirror and wished that you were someone else? Maybe a famous actor or sport hero? If your answer is yes, you’re in good company. Probably everyone who has ever lived wished that they could change at least one physical feature: their nose, their complexion, their height, weight or something.

But beautiful people can be scared in accidents.  Some wealthy people are very insecure, always worried about losing their money on their possession. Jesus, the son of God, was offered all the riches of the world by Satan. Jesus answered: “Worship the lord you’re God and serve him only.”

Jesus, also the greatest teacher who ever lived, knows that Satan’s strategy is t keep our focus off God and the importance of inward beauty and character. He taught his disciples that blessings, true happiness and lasting benefits are the result of seeking first his kingdom and his righteousness. 

If we rely on beauty, wealth, possessions, friendship and other outward aspects of our life for our self-worth, we may find temporary fulfillment and happiness. But the true lasting worth can be measured only in spiritual terms.
