Our Reflection in the Eyes of God…

The recognition that counts is our reflection in the eyes of God.

He loves us for what we are and what we could become. 

He loves the good in us,

not the successful

or persuasive

or charismatic. 

He ignores the image we try to project

because He knows us from within. 

His is the voice within us that says,

“With Me, you do not have to pretend. 

I know you. 

I knew you before you were born. 

I know you because I made you,

and I made you because I need you

or more precisely

because the world needs you. 

There is a task only you can do. 

Now, therefore, be strong and do it. 

You need not seek praise,

nor shall you be deflected by criticism,

for I will be with you every step of the way. 

When you feel most alone,

that is when I will be closest.”

– Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
