When we are born into the world, the world gives us our parents identity, when we are born again God gives us His identity.
The world wants to keep us down, it tells us we can only go so far, that life is of little to no value and that this is as good as it gets.
But God says He created us with purpose, out of love and when we come to Him, He calls us sons and daughters.
Life is fragile, each of us are given life by God, who creates us to bear His image, let no one tell you different. Our value is not in the eyes of our world, rather it is the heart of our Creator.
Choose who you will listen to today, the world which is passing away and wants to take us with it as it dies, or God who has no beginning or end, who is calling us to Him, to be with Him and live forever.

“But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13
