Most sermons are generally heard by people that are regular churchgoers and have pretty straight lives.
This one's for those that are in the middle of a mess of some sort.
Keep plugging away at whatever it is and keep doing the right thing. Go the whole mile and don't cop to the easy way out. You are worth it and owe yourself a good life.
Life can be rough at times and for some it can be downright overwhelming but keep at it! You are worth it.
Do not let yourself or anyone out there cheat you out of your self-esteem. You are worth it.
