Common sense:- Would you 'sell' both of your legs and freedom to walk in this planet for RM1, 000,000? If you're a normal person most probably you don't want.
Science explains that to duplicate human brain, we need to have a large giant computer and billions dollar to create almost similar one (If I'm wrong, don't watch the national Geography channel anymore, OK). Even that will not match the brain power that human have. Generally, our brain uses 20% of our body's energy, but it makes up only 2% of our body's weight. Amazing as it is, we only use 10% of it capability. How cool is that?
Bible verifies it. Psalm 139:14 declares, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” The context of this verse is the incredible nature of our physical bodies. Every aspect of the body, down to the tiniest microscopic cell, reveals that it is fearfully and wonderfully made. There's one time when a kid shouted at me as if I’m deaf saying, 'God loves me!' Surely, this kid has a very healthy self-image.
How you see yourself is how you see others. If you see others as troublesome, not cooperative, less valuable, unimportant etc, most probably... most probably, it's an indication of our inner self. If we want to attempt to correct others, please be sure that we shall examine ourselves first. Jesus in His famous Sermon of the Mount said, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged".(This doesn't mean we shall not correct our brothers when they did something wrong, but we need to check our motive- either to condemn or to correct)
See yourself in a different way now according to God's standard, and you will be able to recognize that people is not that bad as we thought they were. When we see ourselves right, our perspective toward others will be revolutionize. How do see yourself now?
Recognize this, there is an important match going on before you're born. Its call "Sperm Competition". Among thousands of sperms release, there's one winner who 'met' one ovum. After a series of creation, the competition creates YOU. Selected! not by random acts. Wonderfully made! You're a Winner because God create you.
[Unless, you believe we evolve from monkey, then beyond reasonable doubt that my note is nonetheless- wasted.] Smile, have a healthy self-image... when you truly love yourself (not in a selfish manner) then you can easily love others.
