Seeking Him Podcast

Precious and Unique

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I once saw a catalog that offered what they called a “Magical Nightshirt.” It had a message printed backward, so you could read it in the mirror.

The message said, “I am a precious, wondrous, special, unique, rare, valuable, whole, entitled, worthy, and deserving person.” According to the catalog, the nightshirt was meant to “remind you just how precious and unique you are.”

That nightshirt reflects the desire that we all have to feel special and valued. We are precious and unique to God because we were made in His image, but we don’t become valuable by telling ourselves how loveable we are.

Instead we come to God admitting that we are fallen, broken, weak, and sinful. Then we accept His mercy and His incredible love for undeserving sinners demonstrated by Christ’s death on the cross for us.

That’s what gives our lives true value and worth.
