"For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building."
1 Corinthians 3:9
This verse stood out to me today because I think that it shows God's core purpose... it is us. I think in this verse God is saying, to each of us, YOU are important. YOU are my work. We team up with God and work on improving ourselves, and that is the point of life: to get better and learn more. Perhaps knowing how much we matter to God can help us to not let ourselves make bad self-destructive choices, or slip into apathy, thinking that nothing matters. We definitely matter... and expanding on that a little, the people around us matter. They are also God's work, and so helping them is also helping God. Today, let's remember that we matter as God's work in progress. And let's help other people remember that they matter too. :) Everyone is valuable to God, and part of his work.
