"Humans are not designed to help one another figure out their worth. We are naturally selfish and wavering at the hands of our environment, circumstance, mood, and even our hunger level."
Our calculations are not reliable and are as unnecessary as the raisins in the potato salad! Once we average out the days we are held in high regard with the days in which we are a disappointment, our worth will be in the negatives. We will be deemed useless and worthless (such an ugly term to use).
Determining our value based upon recognition, compliments, certifications, degrees, requirements, outward appearance, monetary wealth, and standards can leave us feeling defeated, hurt, and angry. Anything that leaves us feeling this way is not of God. Only we can control how something makes us feel. He deemed us worthy and capable of excellence upon creation, period. God's love and acceptance is never wavering and is forever unconditional. He will deem us worthy before and after we accept Him into our lives, regardless of your education, appearance, wealth, track record, sin, and faith.
In return, we must stop allowing external things to determine our internal feelings about ourselves.
All those things happen.... but God knew that and still deems you worthy and of excellence to do His Will. There is no need to strive for acceptance in the world, but for acceptance into Heaven. That is the highest level and all other levels pale in comparison.
