Self image is something that I believe all of us deal with at one time or another. You'd think that I'd move beyond that at my age but just this morning I looked in the mirror and did not like what I saw looking back at me. So, how am I supposed to instill self esteem in my children, especially my daughters? Fortunately, the answer is simple: turn to God's Word.
1 Samuel 16: tells us of how Samuel was on a mission to find the one who would be king of Israel. He was certain that he had found the one the Lord wanted when he cast his eyes upon Eliab but God told him differently. He told Samuel in verse 7 "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
