HOW SHOULD YOU DETERMINE SOMEONE’s VALUE?
Do you have someone in your life that you value so much that you are willing to die for them?
Do you know someone that values you so much that they are willing to die for you?
How do you value yourself? Do you believe that you are worth dying for?
Thoughts of inferiority attack us all. No one, no matter how beautiful or successful, is immune from thoughts of inferiority.
Who should you allow to determine your value? Who really knows enough of you inside and out and who can really see you and your full potential?
A coworker or friend?
A boyfriend or girlfriend?
A boss or teacher?
Hardly! All these people, including you, are limited in their knowledge and understanding. Compared to God, they lack truth and understanding about what is within you.
So, how do you determine how valuable you are?
The best way to determine the value of something is to find out what someone is willing to pay for it.
What was the price God was willing to pay for you?
Death. His Son.
Do you value someone so much that you would give up your child for them? Is there a person in your life that values you so much that they would give up a child for you?
God, the all mighty creator, the only person that knows every hair on your head, the one that knows your every thought and that has seen your every action, all of your good and all of your bad, he knowingly paid the ultimate price for you: death. He gave up his only son in exchange for you. There is no greater price to pay.
God knows you are extremely valuable. Yes, this means YOU. There are no exceptions to his love for all of his creation. Don’t let the enemy rob this precious truth from you. Maybe you are not yet displaying your full potential, but God sees what you can eventually become and loves you for it today.
YOU are valuable enough to die for, so don’t ever let anyone else beneath God, including yourself, tell you any different.
ROMANS 8:32 NLT
32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
