You, the person reading these words, are precious. Your worth is not rooted in your wealth, physical attractiveness, or status in society, but derives from the fact that you, like every other human being, are created in God's image (Genesis 1:27). During moments of self-doubt or even self-loathing, which almost all of us experience, remember the divine image inside you, and that God loves you: "Humans are beloved for they were created in the image of God. An extra measure of love is shown them by [God's] making it known to them that they are created in God's image" (The Ethics of the Fathers 3:14).
