No Titles, No Hype, Just Jesus

Many times people pursue degrees for the sake of getting a title before their name, such as “Doctor Jones” rather than seeking God and asking Him should they pursue a Doctorate Degree or Master’s Degree or a Bachelor’s Degree.

They believe that pursuing degrees makes them valuable and enhances their self-esteem.  It may make you more valuable from the world’s perspective, but not from God’s perspective.

People are valuable to God because He made them in His image.  However, a person must believe and accept their God-given value.  Once they do this their self-esteem will automatically be enhanced and continue to grow as they grow in the knowledge and understanding of how God sees them – Fearfully and wonderfully made – Awesome Masterpiece – God’s Workmanship.

“I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.”  (Psalm 139:14)

“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].”  (Ephesians 2:10)
