From psychologist Abraham Maslow to the mother of the youngest sibling who always gets picked last, observants of human behavior understand we all have a desire to be chosen. “Pick me!” our hearts scream, wanting someone, anyone to tell us and show us we matter.

His deepest hope is that you will understand the intentionality and purpose with which God chose to set his love—by the giving of himself through Jesus Christ—squarely upon you.
