You are highly esteemed

Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
    Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and infants
    to tell of your strength,
silencing your enemies
    and all who oppose you.
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
    the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
    human beings that you should care for them?
Yet you made them only a little lower than God
    and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,Wh
    putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
    and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
    and everything that swims the ocean currents.
Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
- Psalm 8 (New Living Translation)

What is your self-esteem built on?

If your self-esteem is built on your ability to perform, to be good, to be productive, your self-esteem will be a moving target or like a roller-coaster with many highs and lows. If your self-esteem is built on the knowledge that Someone loves you regardless of your performance, then you will esteem yourself all the time. 

What do you think?
