LifePoint Kids – October 10

Knowing Jesus changes how you see yourself.

In week two, we turn to Matthew 9:9-13 and discover an essential moment from Matthew’s life. As a tax collector, Matthew would have been shunned by Jews and Romans alike. He was seen as a traitor to the Jews. Matthew must have been shocked when Jesus came up to him and asked him to be one of His disciples. Matthew might have seen himself as unworthy, but that would have changed once Jesus made him feel valued.

Bottom Line: Knowing Jesus changes how you see yourself. Matthew might have seen himself as a mess. But Jesus chose Matthew to follow Him. Regardless of who we were or who we are right now, Jesus wants to have a relationship with us too. Jesus sees past our mistakes and sees the individual that God created. When we know that Jesus sees us as valuable, we can start to understand that we’re valuable too.
