TODAY’S READING

1 Peter 2:4-10

KEY VERSE: See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. – 1 John 3:1 (NIV)

THE UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL

MESSAGE

One snowy, wet morning, my sister and I searched the kitchen for discarded bread bags. After the recent deaths of our parents, we couldn’t afford quality footwear. Instead, we used bread bags to cover our socks so our feet and ankles would remain dry on the long walk to school.

Upon arriving at school, I immediately went to the restroom and hid in a stall. Filled with shame, I removed the bread bags so nobody would see them and mock or bully me. I thought I’m nothing but a worthless orphan. I’m trash, just like these bread bags.

Since then, today’s verse has taught me that I am not worthless. Rather, I’m greater than I could ever imagine because of God’s boundless grace. I have been called and chosen to be an ambassador and steward and to bring God glory. (See 2 Cor. 5:17-21.)

At times we may feel inferior or worthless, but God reminds us through scripture that we are mighty and of great value to God. We are not destined to be discarded as trash. We are sons and daughters of Almighty God. What a mind-boggling gift and honor!
