When something is made matters to us. Look at the tag on most any product an you’ll likely see a line like these imprinted on it:
MADE IN CHINA
MADE IN MEXICO
MADE IN AMERICA
And if you could see the line imprinted on your heart,
It would read, MADE IN HEAVEN.
The word made usually conjures up visions of factories and impersonal production lines, but the way heaven creates is entirely different. Every part of you was carefully and intricately crafted by God. Of course, that creation was carried out physically in your mother’s womb, but the idea of you started in the heart of heaven itself and He declared it was good…
God longs for His children to embrace the worth and value He’s given them and then to use it to bless others. When we know who we are and whose we are, we’re free to love, live in joy and make a difference in the world.
