So we see that God has a high opinion of us and so we should each have a high opinion of ourselves.

All may be fine until we walk through the church doors! Suddenly we find that not all of our Christian brothers and sisters think so highly of us. Not everybody may like us. And so maybe we may think "They must be right about me, I'm not so wonderful after all." But let us not be discouraged. Let us remember what God says about us.

If someone does not appreciate us we should not worry. There is not really much we can do about it. We should try to please God and just hope that we end up pleasing them.

Don't worry about what other people think about you. 'The fear of man bringeth a snare' (Proverbs 29 v 25). Here's an interesting verse: -
'Let no man despise thee.' (Titus 2 v 15)

On our part we should treat all people as best as we can. We should try to view people as God views them. We should accept them and love them. We should treat others as we would like them to treat us (Luke 6 v 31)

God accepts us as we are and others should learn to do so also. If they don't then that's their problem.
