Your Heavenly Father has known you for a very long time.

You, as His son or daughter, were chosen by Him to come to earth at this precise time, to be a leader in His great work on earth.

You were chosen not for your bodily characteristics but for your spiritual attributes, such as bravery, courage, integrity of heart, a thirst for truth, a hunger for wisdom, and a desire to serve others.
