The people I have met who are progressing in life and affecting other people's lives, people like Dale Carnegie, a tremendous man who has touched many people's lives, or Robert Schuler, who is ministering to people all over the world to help them improve their self-esteem all seem to say the same thing: If you feel good about yourself, you will feel good about other people. In other words, only after you see yourself as a worthwhile person can you appreciate others as worthwhile people. If you feel good about yourself, you will feel good about other people. That's a very important insight because many people do not feel good about themselves. They look at themselves and wonder why God made them; or they doubt that anyone can find any good in them. But remember, God sees what others, and we ourselves, can't see. God looks at us and see that we are worth feeling good about. We are special to God. We are valuable and important.
