Our True Value
Our true value isn’t that we’re beautiful, brilliant, talented or fabulous. It is not hidden in what others think of us, or what we think of ourselves. It is not equal to our output – our accolades, failures or potential.
The truth is we are but a vapor (James 4:14), here today and gone tomorrow, but yet God loves us. We are messed up and fragile, coming apart at the seams (Romans 3:23), but yet God doesn’t abandon us (Hebrews 13:5).
We have worth because God himself is worthy and He calls us His.
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! 1 John 3:1.
We are worthy because our Maker LOVES us in a way no friend, parent, boyfriend, husband or human person could ever match. God extravagantly, unconditionally and boundlessly loves us.
Though we fall short, He picks us up. He sees us (YOU) as worthy enough to fight for, die for and to redeem – to make a way for our wrongs to forgotten, forgiven (1 Peter 2:24). For our sickness and frailties to be healed and our soul to never perish. Our true value does not lie in who we are, but in who God is and in who we are in Him.
