Ecclesiastes 10:5-7

There are those who think they are something when in reality they are slaves—slaves to their image, to their lifestyle, to their sin, to peer pressure. Others, who live in freedom and are royalty—children of the king—live as if they were nothing: slaves, trapped, and imprisoned. They have no confidence, no faith in their worth, even though they were bought at a price. Neither understands who they are.

There are those outside of Christ who think of themselves as something when they are not. At the same time, many who have Christ in their lives cannot see their own worth, even though Jesus gave it to them. When the world around you tells you “you are worthless,” it can be hard to see the invisible God who bought you at such a high price. Ask God to let you see yourself and others with his eyes.
