Psalm 139:13-18

KEY VERSE: Jesus said, “How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” – John 5:44 (NIV)


My family and I are serving as missionaries in Tanzania, Africa. I accompany my daughter Olivia to school in a bajaji (a three-wheeled tut-tut taxi). Most days, the drivers are quiet or make small talk. But one day a driver berated Olivia for having substandard Swahili. He barked at me for not having taught her better.

We dropped Olivia off at school. Later, I told her, “I’m sorry that the driver was so mean to you.” She looked at me in confusion. Mean to her? She hadn’t even noticed. I was amazed. Perhaps she felt safe enough in my presence that any criticism or accusation did not affect her.

Oh, how I want that assurance! I want to walk through life confident that my divine parent is in charge and knowing that criticism won’t matter because I rest in God’s truths.

In John 5:44 Jesus gets to the heart of the issue. It is our Creator who determines our identity, not our critics. So, we can allow God’s words to matter more than accusations from our critics. We obtain our worth from our heavenly parent who loves us.

I am God’s beloved — that is what defines me.


Dear God, help us to root our identity in you rather than what others say. Amen.
