You are a masterpiece created in the image of God. Christians know that – but many of us act as if we are ignorant or negligent of that fact.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (NLT)
Why is it then, that we take better care of assets purchased with cash, than we take care of ourselves, a priceless masterpiece; when we are irreplaceable?
On top of being a masterpiece creation, our body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit and Jesus made a statement about allowing the Temple to be defiled by external things that should have no place there.
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself” (NLT)
Matthew 21:12-13 “Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves. He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves!” (NLT)
Masterful Care of the Masterpiece
Think of the care put to maintain the Mona Lisa for many generations to come. Think of the care you put into your new car. Surely, you are worthy of even better care?
Loving self-care does take time – you are worth it! Thinking that 30 minutes to exercise each day, and 15 minutes on your personal growth will add more to you than it takes away. NOT spending that time to invest in yourself may cost you more later and all the willingness then to invest in your health and growth may be too late.
Do you value you? Do you see that you are a masterpiece, a one-of-a-kind creation? Do you know the additional impact you could add to your quality of life experience for yourself and those who matter to you if you simply embraced your precious value?
I challenge you today to value yourself MORE than any asset money can buy. Pour loving self-care into you because you – the masterpiece that you are – deserve it!
