"Are you worthy" seems like an ironic question to ask doesn't it? However your answer to that question is a window to what you believe about yourself. We all tend to think in two tracks when it comes to our worthiness, first some of us believe we must "do" something to become worthy, our value is not inherent in us, we must do things to earn value; we must make so much money, or help so many people, or create things, produce things, we gain our self worth based on our view of others opinions about us, and we see our value based on the accomplishments of others. When we view our worthiness this way we are dependent on others opinions and accomplishments. Our self worth is now extrinsic as we strive for the approval of others. This typically creates feelings of bitterness, envy, jealousy, and an air of hopelessness that we never will "measure up" to the value other people have. The second track of thought is we believe we are worthy because of who we are, and who we are created to be. We thrive in our world because we are expressing who we are, and live to bring added value to others. Our self worth is intrinsic and nothing we do can create more value in us, we live to give, not perform. We live to express ourselves never to impress others. When we live to add value to others we live from hope, and are energized by the success of those we touch and encourage. You'll know your worth when you stop keeping up with the Jone's, and can sit back and cheer them on! Today, reflect on your worthiness. Do you find yourself in the struggle to "keep up constantly" with your image of worthiness? If so, today's suggestion is to find one area of your life to "express" the value you have. How does it feel to give value and thrive, verses seeking value to strive?
