You Are Unique!

Do you ever feel you've been left behind in the race—that those around you are all winners, and you a perennial loser? To accept these arguments is to believe that God is playing favorites—that He has given more good to one of His children than to another. But this state of thought is corrected as we understand God's universal, impartial love for all His creation and each individual's unique place to fill in that creation.

Each of us has a singular position in life, a place no one else can fill. We each have a special brand of beauty, a particular way of expressing love. Mrs. Eddy writes, "Each individual must fill his own niche in time and eternity." Retrospection and Introspection, p. 70;

Christ Jesus could have been pointing to the importance of every individual in the divine order when he said: "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." Luke 12:6, 7.
