"Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself" (Philippians 2:3).

Somewhere between the two ditches of seeing ourselves as either the greatest thing since sliced bread or a worthless hunk of garbage is the middle road of healthy self-esteem. Find out what that means and how to get there below.

A Student's Look as Gifts and Talents

I remember looking at the class choices in front of me. Math was not easy and the idea of choosing anything higher than Basic Math twisted my stomach into knots. In my early teens, it was difficult for me to see past the next school year and into the kind of future where the choices I made that day would have any impact on my life at all.

We all feel like outsiders from time to time. Like we don’t fit in with whatever group we are in.

Imagine being under the age of 14, pregnant due to rape and/or incest, and not knowing where to turn. This topic is often brought up during discussions on abortion. It is during situations like this that many people feel abortion would be acceptable. What do you think?

We Won't Fail With God

God’s people sin and make mistakes. Disappointment may follow strongly when we see someone we love and hold in high esteem fail. We may even be merciless to ourselves when we fall short. But how does God see those He has called and chosen when they sin and make mistakes?

Valued by God

You have value. You have value not because of your potential or the things that you do—but you have worth because you exist and were created by God.

Child of God

In a book that I have been recently studying by Allison Bottke, she made an observation that really struck my heart. She said, “A growing child is presented with one of two paths, survival or development.” She continued on by saying, “If a child is abused, neglected, abandoned, ignored or made to assume adult responsibilities, she must focus her attention and energy on survival.” But “if a child is not chronically frightened and confused, he is free to expand into the developmental tasks presented to him as he grows up.”
