Self-Esteem is Highly Overrated



In the past 2 weeks I have been randomly shown pictures by people at work of people that look like me. To their credit these people do look like me. The first one is a guy named Kevin that is in the top 24 of American Idol (why can't the American Idol I resemble be cool looking!) the other is a random picture of an associate pastor in Alabama. I was sent this picture with the title "wow, Rob really let himself go!" Both pictures are a reminder to me that not only is self-esteem highly over-rated, but also as 1 Cor. 15:40 says, "There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another."

Rob,

Me and my wife Becky visited Grace Church last week when Craig was preaching Grace-filled Parenting. That was our first time there and we met a few people and Craig. I told Adrian Warnock about your church on Tuesday evening as I correspond with him.

Paul--my wife and I were working in the elementary children's ministry that Sunday--did we meet?

Rob,

I enjoyed reading your postings. You are a true example of "live what you preach" so to say. Keep up the wonder work of sharing God's word.
