The Insignificance of Insignificance
Whenever you feel insignificant, remember how important you are to God.
It doesn’t take much effort to feel insignificant. Another person–probably someone you know pretty well–makes a negative comment about you, or your fail to meet your own expectations, and soon you’re feeling low.
Or you start comparing your mundane achievements to the people who make headlines for their great accomplisments–especially in your field–and it doesn’t take long for you to believe that your work or your position doesn’t count for much. You wonder if anybody really cares.
Okay, we’ve gone low enough! That’s no place for someone who God loves and cares about more than can be imagined. Your life has value and what you do has significance because you are important to God.
“Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to him than whole flock of sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
