Inbuilt in all of us is the need to be valued, to feel precious.
Many people struggle with this (eg as parents; in the workforce). Children can struggle with it too ….. that they are loved and accepted for who they are.
This message will look at how we are precious to God (as the lost sheep was precious to the shepherd)
- We are precious, not because of who we are (clever, good parent, high-income earning etc) but because of who God is
- God’s love for us is unconditional
- When we come to see and believe that, we are freed to love those around us unconditionally
