Our Search for Significance

As humans, we all long to be loved and accepted. Most of the time, we look for this love and acceptance at the wrong places too. We try to put our best efforts to become lovable. But even with our best efforts, we can never find lasting and fulfilling peace if we have to continually prove ourselves to others. We base our self-worth on how we perform or on how others see us.

But that is not the biblical self- worth. Our search for significance can only be answered by God. This hunger for self-worth within us is God-given and can only be satisfied by Him. Our value is not dependent on our ability to earn the acceptance of people but rather, its true source is the love and acceptance of God.
