Thereís no one in the whole world just like you! You donít need to wear a Halloween costume to be unique. Youíre special every day of the year!
No one else looks exactly like you and talks like you and thinks like you. Youíre a one-of-a-kind creation.
Long before you were born God planned how you would look from the top of your head down to your toes.
Look at your hands. No one else has fingerprints exactly like yours. God is so wise that He designed a fresh set for each person. He never has to use the same pattern twice!
God made you special because He loves you. He made you so that you could know Him and love Him back.
The Bible says that God cares about each bird in the sky. Donít you think that God is even more interested in you?
God knows everything about us. He knows the good things that we do and the bad things that we donít want anyone to know about. The Bible says that we all have done bad things (sins) and that we all deserve to be punished.
But you and I are so important to God that He sent His very own Son, Jesus Christ, to take our punishment. ďFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal lifeĒ (John 3:16).
God loves you so much that He wants to forgive you. But first you must agree with Him that you have sinned.
Right now you can talk to God. Tell Him that you want Jesus to be your Savior. He is always ready to listen to you. He wants you to be part of His family and to help you every day.
