Today we remember Joseph, guardian of Jesus. This message was adapted from “Faith reflections: Beloved and wonderfully made” written by Emily Heitzman in the February 2016 issue of Cafe.
Worthy of love
When the voices around us and often within us are saying we are not valued or good enough, we must remember that we are–in fact –children of God and that we are now, always and forever ἀγαπητός (ag-ap-ay-tos’): beloved. I love this word ἀγαπητός.
Not only does it mean “one who is loved,” but it can also be translated: “esteemed,” “dear” and my favorite: “worthy of love.”
