Valuing ourselves and others

Have you ever felt that your dignity or value was threatened, or even lost? At such times, I’ve found it helpful to seek a fresh, spiritual perspective—one that lifts us to realize our unbreakable relation to God and the value this gives to each of us individually as well as to the world.

A pivotal experience in my college years helped me to understand that my worth (and that of others) really comes from God, Spirit, and therefore is spiritual and forever undiminished. I had accepted a summer waitressing job that included serving alcoholic drinks. Shortly after starting the job, I became distraught by the task of bringing round after round of drinks to people who became increasingly loud, and sometimes acted verbally out of line.
