You Are Important

“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important,” said the eleventh Doctor in the episode A Christmas Carol.

I understand that Matt Smith may not be the most reliable source for life advice, and I also understand that you may have never seen Doctor Who and you may be very lost right now. I’ve already written another post about the Doctor, so check that out here.  It probably won’t clear up any of your confusion, but read it anyway.

What Eleven is saying is important.  (That was kind of a pun and it was puntended).  In my 15 years of boring life on earth, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important either.  Everyone is important to someone.  You have family.  You have friends.  Someone probably has a crush on you and you’ll never know.  Your pets think you’re important.  Little kids think you’re cool.  Random strangers think you’re normal.  God thinks you’re worth dying for.

Little stuff like that.

I’ve also heard it put like this–“Nobody is nobody.”  You are somebody.  You are important.

Think of Isaiah 43:4.  “Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.”  Although here God was talking about His nation Israel (never take a verse out of context!), He would say the same of you.  “You are honored, and I love you.”  Even when you think you’re nothing and nobody and unimportant, you ARE.  You are all three of those things put together, plus a whole lot more.  And don’t you forget it.

Even the tenth doctor got in on it: “There is no such thing as an ordinary human,” he said, reinforcing the point that God has been trying to make literally forever.  You were made with a purpose and a plan, and if that’s not important, I don’t know what is.
