10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
You are precious in the eyes of God. Once you know your worth, you will not allow anyone to take advantage of you. You will understand that you set the tone for how people treat you.
Understanding your worth will keep you from making people a priority that can only make you an option.
It is good to have self-esteem so that you don't end up with an inferiority complex. However, some Christians are guilty of having a superiority complex. They feel that they are better than the lost because they have chosen the more excellent way (1 Corinthians 12:31). However, my mother always told me: "Although no one is better than you, you are no better than anyone else."
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
He loved THE WORLD - not just you! So, don't get it twisted. You were to die for - but so was everyone else!
