“Self respect, self worth and self love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.” Rob Liano
The world today seems to find meaning, value, and purpose within the sphere of what we do (success, acts of kindness or generosity, etc.), what others think or say about us, and what we have (health, good family, material possessions, etc.).
Considering today’s thought, something is amiss when our value is based on those areas outside of self. The challenge is recognizing the balance with thinking too highly or too lowly of oneself. Biblically, we see a responsibility to maintain the proper perspective.
Our value comes from God because we are created in His image. We are His beloved. When we understand the truth of this statement, we will stop looking for our value from any other source.
Leadership requires an ability to find the right perspective on self-value, but also to help others gain the needed perspective to their self-value.
Fulfilling this role as leaders opens a door of opportunity to reach greater potential in our service to the Lord.
