Remember that old saying, “Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names can never hurt me”? That thought may help us keep a resilient will, but it’s not true about the heart. We can be hurt plenty by labels. Maybe you are struggling today with a label that someone else has given you. Maybe your head is insisting that God loves you, but your heart and emotions keep punching it away! Whenever you feel this way, the best thing you can do is pick up your Bible and remind yourself of what God says! His Word is the key to knowing your true identity.
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119:130)
