At my son’s school the other day, I spotted some artwork that lined his classroom walls. Each child created a flower and wrote five descriptive words about another classmate on each petal. One girl said my son was “handsome, smart, friendly, trustworthy, special.” When he came home, I affirmed all of those traits within him. I asked him how he felt about how his classmate described him. He said it made him feel good that someone saw him that way. When I heard my child’s reaction, I had to stop and wonder: If he feels this way about encouragement from a friend, how much more would He feel if he knew God saw Him this way too?
