"On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor." (1 Corinthians 12:22)
It's common to assume if you don't hold a prominent position or have an obvious-to-everyone talent that you're lacking somehow and unimportant. That you're overlooked by everyone - even God.
Not so. You are created for God's glory according to His good pleasure.
"Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made." (Isaiah 43:6-7).
My friend Amy Carroll is with a team ministering to women in India right now. She just sent me a quick update to say:
We finished our first 3-day conference in Siliguri, and it was absolutely glorious--so much more amazing than I even imagined. One woman approached my friend Peggy at the end and said, "Thank you for making us important."
Peggy replied with a smile, "God had already made you important, sweetheart."
The woman said, "Yes, but we didn't know."
