We are God’s beloved and God is well pleased with us. The whole human family. All of us. In spite of, perhaps because of our human frailty, failures, and weaknesses. God made us human. We are God’s. We are God’s creation, beloved and pleasing to God.
Lord, teach me to see myself and the all of the human family with your eyes and heart.
And a voice came from the heavens, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11
