Loved by GodIn the classic children’s story “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B. White, an unlikely friendship develops between a wise barn spider named Charlotte who shares her home with Wilbur, an unassuming pig. Wilbur loves life and is despondent when he learns that it might be cut short only to end up on a farmer’s breakfast plate. But things turn around when he wakes up each day to a new message spun into the web in the rafters above him, such as “some pig,” “humble,” and my personal favorite, “radiant.” The townsfolk are stumped by Charlotte’s work and attribute the phenomenon to divine intervention. Wilbur grows in self-esteem each day and ultimately his life is spared.

We all could use a friend like Charlotte, someone to tell us – and others – how valued we are and why our life is important. Imagine waking up each day to a banner above your head: “You’re amazing!” Those kinds of genuine affirmations of the gold in character often come from a parent, teacher, friend, or even a stranger, and point to the inherent goodness in each one of us.

Above all, though, God – divine Love itself – wants each of us to know just how loved we are. We see evidence of this in the Bible. For instance, God said to Christ Jesus, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). Of course, we aren’t Jesus, but his teachings make it pretty clear that God is well pleased with each one of us. In fact, God made us not materially, but as Love’s own spiritual, infinitely loved expression. We exist to reflect God, just like a likeness in a mirror. So we all have a natural ability to express spiritual qualities that are valuable and help us be successful.

I saw tangible evidence of this some years ago when my husband called me from work one day. He was worried about his job security because things had become strained between him and someone he worked for. Though he had been working diligently and productively, he felt that he was being underestimated and that his contribution in the office was no longer valued.
