Measuring with what?

Today I was giving my daughter a bath and just like your children’s bathtubs I have no lack of toys.  My mother in law had given her piles of measuring cups and spoons to play with and she loves them.  I was looking at them and noticed even though they were supposed to be the same measuring size they didn’t look right.  Sure enough when I checked, they were not exact. 

What are you measuring yourself with?  If you are using any man made device or wisdom I can assure you that it is not exact.  It is not measuring what it says it is, and further more is probably completely irrelevant in the eternal realm.

What does God say about you?  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.  And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.Romans 8:29-30.

He created you, He knitted you together in your mother’s womb and He has a count of the very hairs on your head.  Because He created you and predestined you to become who you are becoming, a transformed heir to the throne.   He also justified you. Justified means; God removed your guilt and penalty of sin at the same time He made you righteous through the blood of Christ.  He is in the process of glorifying you.  Glorification is the ultimate perfection of believers.  What man made device, social network or esteemed degree could measure that?

Your beauty,worth, God given wisdom and ability to succeed is limited only by your ability to submit to God’s plan for you. 

Stop wasting your time measuring when you could be transforming.  

Stop and look at yourself through God’s eyes you are a jewel.
