What are your most “felt” needs? The so-called experts say they are:
2 B loved
2 B long
2 B significant
Let’s take a quick inventory.
- Do you feel loved? Even if you have no living family or friends, know that God loves you lavishly. Each breath is a gift of His love, the Love that traded His Son’s life for yours.
- Do you have a sense of being connected? If you’re a Jesus-follower, you’re a member of His Body of believers worldwide. You may feel like you’re only a toenail in His Body, but you’re of great value. Need proof? Tear off your toenail.
- Do you believe your life matters? Jesus says He knows when a mere sparrow falls, so imagine how precious you are to Him. You’re worth the life of His Son!
2 B loved, 2 B long, 2 B significant. Everyone has those three needs.
How can you encourage the next person you’ll be with?
"My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love which shows itself in action.” 1 John 3:18
