3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

Your self esteem is a reflection of how you believe other people see you.

It consists of who you think other people think you are. And that can be a real downer. Lindy Chappoten, a pitcher of middling talents who played for the old Shawnee Hawks in the Class D Sooner League, was once traded to the Texarkana Bears for 20 uniforms. That must not have been a real great feeling. However, as Dr Richard Dobbins says, “IT would be nice if everyone liked me, but it’s not necessary” For not even Jesus was liked by everyone. He had twelve disciples, and one betrayed him and one denyed him.
