Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Is quoted as saying,
"We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe…"
Our family tribe, in many instances, are the first two Ink us psychologically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually with rejection. God does just the opposite of of our tribe. He says behold I have engraved you in the palm of my hand. The word in engrave in the Hebrew, is where we get the word tattoo. God says essentially, while others have tattoo you with rejection I have tattooed you with acceptance in the palm of my hand…He says, I have been willing to go through severe pain to tat myself with your name.
So, who will you believe, your tribe or He who treasures you?
