Do you ever feel useless? Do you ever feel worthless? Do you write yourself off as a nobody. Maybe you compare yourself to others and decide:
- I have nothing
- I can do nothing
- I can give nothing
- I am nothing
I want to encourage you with the shepherds in Luke 2:15-20. Shepherds were very poor, very dirty, and very smelly. People looked down on them and avoided them. Yet God chose them as the first ones to hear and tell the news of Jesus’s birth. When the angels told them about Jesus’s birth in Bethlehem, they ran to the stable and found the manger where Jesus was lying.

Don’t write off anyone as a nobody, especially not yourself, because God never writes off anybody as a nobody.
