NEVER SELL YOURSELF SHORT.

All that depresses you, all that you fear, is really powerless to harm you.  Depression and fear are phantoms that exist only in our minds.  It is time to get up from the earth’s bonds of depression and wake up to beauty, joy, peace, and a life inspired by love.  Arise from death to life.  Today’s a new day—live, love, and work with God.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”  (Luke 4:18–19)

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, it is the quality of life that determines its value.  The most valuable life is one of honesty, purity, unselfishness, and love.  This standard can be used to judge the lives of all people in determining their value to this world.  By this standard, most so-called heroes of history were not great men.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Never settle for less than you’re worth!
