We are God’s masterpiece, His greatest creation, His finest work. The Bible tells us that God was incredibly thoughtful, intentional, and deliberate about the process. It required great wisdom and skill; nothing about it was haphazard or accidental.
The result? Each of us is a true original—beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted. We may not always feel so unique, so special, or so wonderful, but He says that we are. And when we listen, when we learn to believe it, we can resist the temptation to constantly measure and compare ourselves. We can let go of jealousy, insecurity, and competition. We can find joy, peace, contentment, and a sense of wonder in being His masterpiece.
