You are God's treasured posession. He created you in his image—be yourself
A fake moustache
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. Deuteronomy 7:6 (NIV) So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 (NIV)
Hi, my name is Mr. Moustachio. Well, actually it’s not, but I got really tired of being just plain boring me. So, I thought it would be fun to be Mr. Moustachio instead because he’s way cooler than I am. Oh, but what did I come up here to do anyway? Oh yeah, I was going to read a Scripture. Deuteronomy 7:6 says, "For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession." Genesis 1:27 says that God has created us in his own image. Wow, you guys must be really special for God to tell you that you are his treasured possessions! I bet you have never wished you were like somebody else. Being made in God’s images is even cooler than having a moustache. You know something I think that verse applies to me too. I guess I’m not so boring after all. I’m pretty special, and should just be happy to be me. (Remove the moustache)
Father, Thank you for loving us so much that you would make us your treasured possession. Help us not to forget that you made us and love us just the way we are.
