Christian Dating: Don’t Sell Yourself Short


Many times in relationships, we find ourselves stooping down to reach others.  We sacrifice a little of what we have just to meet others halfway.

This usually happen to women.  When we meet or date someone whom we think might be a little intimidated by us, we do not show our true potential in fear that we might scare him away.

Sometimes, we have to forget our own needs to give way in relationships.  Women are creatures capable of loving so much that they are willing to sacrifice their own happiness and needs for the sake of those in need. And that’s not always a good thing.

Problem is it sometimes comes to a point when we obliviously sell ourselves short.  We forget our value, we neglect our own needs, and we sacrifice way too much.  

If a relationship is asking you to sacrifice your dignity and values, it is time to walk away from that relationship.

Remember your worth.  Remember that you have been fearfully and wonderfully made.  Remember that the God of all creations made you, intricately knitted you in your mother’s womb, and breathed life into you.  You are made in His image and likeness.

Remember that you have been saved, by no less than the Son of God’s most precious blood, every drop was given up for you, until His last breath He has loved you, and will keep on loving you until the end of time.

Remember that you are not here by accident, because the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow has plans for you to prosper you and not to harm you.  You have a promising future ahead.

When you feel like nobody values you, or that you are less than ordinary, remember that He rejoices over you with singing.

We all feel unworthy at one point in our lives.  Every morning, the enemy whispers lies in our hearts:

You are ugly.

You are sinful, you are not worthy of God’s grace.

You are nothing in this world.

Nobody loves you.

But every moment of every day, God reminds us that we are loved, we are valued, we are worth more than gold.  The Scriptures is full of God’s promises for His children.

It is therefore a mistake to sell ourselves cheap.  We must never succumb to what the world dictates.  We must never doubt our value.

If Jesus thinks we are worth dying for, who can tell us otherwise?
