More Than a Dot

Every year, Clubhouse readers write and illustrate a full issue of the magazine. We’re excited to share this devotion, written by a kid like you!

If you look at a piece of paper with a giant dot in the middle, you will most likely focus on the dot. What most people won’t see is the white space around the dot.

The dot represents your worldly label. Everybody has one, whether it says you’re worthless, weak or mean.

The white space represents the good that God has put in you. Other people might define you by your dot, but God doesn’t see you that way. He sent Jesus to die on a cross to forgive and erase that ugly mark.

When you think you are worthless, read 1 Samuel 16:7 and 1 Thessalonians 1:4, for it tells you that you are loved and chosen.

When you think you are weak, read 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 and Isaiah 40:31, for it tells you that you are strong in the Lord.

When you think you are ugly, read 1 Peter 3:3-4, for it tells you that you are beautiful and worthy of the king.

When you think you are heartless, rude, mean, loud or fake, read Proverbs 21:2, for it tells you that God sees your heart.

When you feel judged, read Galatians 5:1, for it tells you that you are free.

When you think you are weird or awkward, read Psalm 139:13-14 and Ephesians 2:10, for it tells you that you are fearfully and wonderfully made and are God’s workmanship.

Remember that you are deeply loved, because that’s what God calls you.
