What's the Worth?
My husband and I have a plastic ice cream bucket full of old coins. Both of us collected them when we were young and "somehow" our separate collections became one big 'ole bucket of coins.
I used to work at KFC (back in the day...) and anytime I found an interesting old coin, I'd swap it out with a newer one from my wallet. I have some from the early 1900's. Which I think are super cool!
My husband would argue that those are the coins that he found instead of me. It's a bit of a joke at our house. :)
We can't help but wonder what some of them might be worth today. But whether they are worth much money or not, they are valuable to us because of the history we have collecting them, bickering over them and laughing about who really found and owns the coins.
I've had WORTH on my mind lately.
I like this definition I found...
Worth: The value equivalent to that of someone or something under consideration; the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated.
My favorite part is where it says - the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated.
Have you ever considered your own worth? Or have you ever felt worth less than others?
There will be times in life when we feel "less than" or "worth-less" than others. It's human nature. We compare ourselves.
You may not feel valued in a personal relationship. You may not feel valued in your position at work. But you are worth a lot to God.
He cares about the BIG things in your life.
He cares about the SMALL things, too.
Nothing about you is worthless to Him.
He knows you well.
The very hairs of your head are numbered. 💗
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:6-7
