BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE

Perhaps you remember the farm family who, many years ago, lived in dire poverty. One Christmas someone sent them their first mirror. The teen-aged boy saw himself for the first time. He said to his mother: "Mom, look how ugly I am. How can you love me when you see how dirty and ugly I am?"

She put her arm around him and with tears in her eyes replied, "Because you are mine."

The truth is, IT'S NOT WHO WE ARE BUT WHOSE WE ARE that really matters. This is the secret of our dignity and worth as persons. It is through our relationship with Jesus Christ that we have such a position of status and prestige!
