Understandable Message: Though we all Belong to “Groups” of people, we have all felt alone in a crowd at one time or another. The world tells us that we need to be accepted , and gives us empty promises of how to achieve our desires. It offers cravings, that can not be satisfied, and ultimately leave us feeling broken and alone. We are beautiful and valuable, and God loved us so much that He died for us. Matt 22:33-40 talks about loving others as ourselves, but if we don’t love ourselves we cant really love someone else. Many of the ladies, could not look in the mirror and say,”I am beautiful, and I am valuable.” The fact is many girls today, do not feel beautiful, and do not think they are valuable. The world sets a standard that is impossible to achieve. You have to look like this, drive this, own this, and wear this. If you don’t, well you just don’t fit in. It was really sad seeing in their eyes, they don’t feel beautiful, or possibly valuable. The guys laughed when saying it, I think we lose testosterone points saying that we are beautiful! But that is how God sees us, beautiful and valuable. If He didn’t He wouldn’t have created us, and certainly would not have died for us.
