There’s a new slogan out: “you are enough”. It’s the latest foray into convincing people that “self love” is the pathway to freedom and success.
Well, this is just repackaged self-esteem nonsense of the same variety preached by secular thought leaders a few decades ago!
Instead of going to church, we are encouraged to go to sporting events in huge stadiums on Sunday or stay home and read the newspaper. Instead of studying the word of God we are told to meditate on ourselves while holding crystals and humming.
How ridiculous! Joy comes from knowing who we are in Christ. Philippians 2:3says, “do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value othersabove yourselves.”
So in essence the opposite of everything we have heard!
The meek will inherit the Earth. Confidence comes from working hard and living a Godly life. Instead of looking for self esteem look for God in his scriptures, in his creation, in serving people.
