THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
If a person really were "worth his weight in gold," then a 200lb man
would be worth about $3.9 million!
As it is though, if a person could sell his body for the chemicals in it
(potassium, sodium, iron, etc), he'd be worth about $1.38!!
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Light from the Word.
The kingdom of God is for people who have value because of their LIFE,
not because of their WORTH!
Max Lucado tells an interesting story related to this.
He says there is a sweater in his closet that is far too small for him.
It isn't WORTH anything, because he can't wear it.
But, he has KEPT the sweater for many years.
The reason? His mother knitted that sweater for him!
The sweater is not kept for its worth, but because of LOVE!
Some things are valued because they ARE,
and because of LOVE for them!
You are a creation of God!
You are valuable because of God's LOVE for you!
You are worth His attention when you pray!
You are worth His grace to sustain you!
You are worth the His mercy for forgiveness!
You are worth the blood of Jesus!
You are worth all of that, not because of your work,
but simply because of His LOVE for you!
