Self-Esteem-Part 2

(Rom 12:3) says “For I say through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man a measure of faith.”

The second thing we can learn about self-esteem or having a proper view of who we are is: Our self esteem is affected by how closely we identify with Christ: Healthy self-esteem is important because some of us think too little of ourselves; on the other hand, some of us overestimate ourselves. The key to an honest and accurate evaluation is knowing the basis of our self-worth—our identity in Christ.

Apart from him, we aren’t capable of very much by eternal standards; in him, we are valuable and capable of worthy service. Thus, evaluating ourselves by worldly standards of success and achievement can cause us to think too much about our worth in the eyes of others and thus miss our true value in God’s eyes. And the truth is that we all get caught up in what others think and believe our worth is. But let’s attempt to find our worth in the eyes of God because as long as we try to impress man the standard of our worth will always be changing based upon what mood man is in today but God’s standard never changes.

God Bless You
