"Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” Mary, an insignificant young woman from an insignificant place discovers her significance in those words: God has looked on you with favor. And God looks on each one of us with favor, even in those times when it’s hard to see our own worth despite our gifts and riches. Imagine how much more difficult it can be for those whom we might consider “least favored” to see their value and worth?
See yourself as God sees you and look with favor upon yourself. Look with favor upon someone whom you do not often see favorably and see him or her how he or she is seen by God.
