For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. – Romans 8:29 KJV
God has a purpose for all of us. He even had a purpose for Jesus before Jesus was born. The Lord knew that Jesus would be the Savior of the world.
The image of Jesus was a humble one. He was born into poverty and placed into a manger. Most of us can say that we were at least born at a hospital, not in a barn!
When we start to think that we have to be more like other people to be successful, we can remember that we are the children of God. It doesn’t get better than that! Amen.
