Have you ever had a “label” on you? Good or bad, what labels have you had someone put on you?
Labels can sometimes hurt, but it is important to remember that there is only one label that will be true in our lives, and that is the label that Christ has given us. Christ loves us and cares about us to the point where He died for us so that we can have a relationship with Him. That is so much bigger and better than a label.
EPHESIANS 2:10For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
What good things do you think God planned for you long ago?
At the moment you were created, God had already spent years and years knowing that you have potential to do great things. Because there are great things that God wants you to do, that influenced how you were created. God created you to be you for a reason, and that is to be His masterpiece and show others the love of Jesus Christ like only you can.
Why is it important to not put labels on others?
Just like God created you to be so much more than just a person’s label, He did the same for everyone else. Any time that we look at someone and put them in a box we are not acknowledging the potential of God’s creation. If God can create everything, and if Jesus can bring grace to every sinner, everyone’s potential is endless and everyone can have a broad future.
