Someone said once, “I looked up my family tree and it was a shrub.” Lol.
In other words, they weren’t too proud of their family tree. That person may say that they grew up on the wrong side of the tracks.
Maybe you grew up tough. Maybe your background wasn’t the best….And because of that, we can think that God doesn’t love us. That is not true!! Our past does not matter.
Paul said in Galatians 4:7 “Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.”
Think about that! We are children of God! Whenever you begin to feel worthless or insignificant, be reminded that you are a child of the King!
Maybe you grew up poor.
Maybe your home life wasn’t the best.
Maybe you have made some mistakes along the way. You have failed.
Maybe you have gone through bankruptcy.
Maybe you got fired.
Maybe you got hooked on drugs or alcohol. None of that will keep God from loving us. If you trust Jesus as your Savior, you are a child of the King! You are loved!
As Paul said, “Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.”
