In this two-week series, we’ll be talking about what it’s like to be weird. After all, even the most normal among us are still weird in our own ways. Sometimes feeling weird can make us feel worthless or alone. But the truth is, God created us to be different from the very beginning.
When God made man, He created us in His own image. As humans, we’re pretty different from the rest of creation. In God’s eyes, this unique characteristic is exactly what gives us value. And when you recognize your value as God’s greatest creation, you begin to be more okay with the things that make you feel weird.
How much money is in your pocket right now? No matter how much money you have, you probably feel like it’s not much. Because when you’re in high school, what can you really do about money? In a lot of ways you feel powerless with how much you or your family earns and how it’s spent. But what if you have more power than you realize? You have the power to help your family, change your habits, and even impact others in a big way.
The truth is, money matters. Right here. Right now. And when you choose to change the way you think about it, when you choose to own your attitudes and your decisions with the cash you do have, God can do some big things in you and even bigger things through you.
