Worth is a tricky word, it is both an adjective and a noun depending on how its used.
Can you even measure worth and judging by the bible verse in 1 Peter I may have a lot to work on, as a short gobby person to people who know me well.
In first world countries how do we value someone’s worth? I live in a culture where people want to keep up with the Joneses, have the perfect house with the perfect family and perfect life. This includes a lot of Christians.
But life as we have all learnt recently is far from perfect. It is clouded, twisted and life can be cheap.
Why would anyone be worth more than anyone else? It doesn’t matter if your in government, a film star, sports personality, doctor, teacher, bin man, cleaner or unemployed. We are all worth so much to God.
We are all part of a much bigger purpose all made for a calling only we do. All parts of a jigsaw puzzle, different shapes, sizes, and colours with different textures and rough edges.
If one of those pieces is missing we are missing something and will never be complete.
We can’t judge another persons worth that is not our right. We cannot down play our worth either.
We are all sinful and we are not worthy to even present ourselves to God, but through his only son, Jesus who considered us so worthy he wanted to die to know us. How incredible and mind blowing is that.
We need to share that worth with others through actions, words and love.
In the words of the loreal advert…… Because I’m worth it! …… And so are you.
