It is important to realize that I am a little person. I am little because I am weak, because I fail and stumble along often, because I stutter, because I get angry more than I should, because I sometimes choose not to love when it counts, and a host of other shortcomings including cheating on my diet more than following it most weeks. When I know that I am little then I realize I need a healthy dependance upon the God Who has compassion on me.
But in my smallness it is equally important to realize that I am a great person. I am great because I am greatly beloved, greatly delighted in, greatly valued, greatly embraced, greatly accepted, greatly worthwhile, greatly celebrated, and I don't even have to try to be those things. I am great simply because that's how God sees and defines me. Now that's good news if you ask me.
