You Are Special

Whether you are a parent, a spouse, or a friend,  

you are truly a gift from God.  

He chose and created you,   

brought you into the world,  

and into lives that needed the one-and-only you.  

God has blessed you—  

He delights in reminding you  

of what a blessing you are.   

Know this—how much you are loved  

and how special you are to him  

and to so many others.

In light of this truth… 

How can you adapt  

your thoughts about yourself  

to who God says you are?  

Today’s Reading: Proverbs 27:9-10 

The heartfelt counsel of a friend 
    is as sweet as perfume and incense. 

Never abandon a friend— 
    either yours or your father’s. 
When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. 
    It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away.
