Am Worth Something!
it drives us. those things we find valuable, we will do most anything
for. Not too long ago there were a couple of crazes that swept the
nation. Beenie Babies and Pokemon cards. To some, hearing the
name of one of these made your heart race with excitement, yet others,
disdain. People wanted these, and they would fight, argue, lie, cheat
and steal for them. It was something that was valued.
Hear the Good News, Christ values
us. Moreover, he will do anything, just short of sin, to reach us
and to call us his own. As Christians, we too should want to
do anything and everything just short of sinning to reach out and have
another experience Christ.
What do you think? Jesus taught this parable using a woman's dowry.
This was more valuable than merely a coin. Beenie Babies, evidently
are more valuable than a regular stuffed animal, and people are more than
sentient beings. Anything short of sin. Reach them. We are
me, I do not quite know, yet you do. I think I am okay most of the
time, yet You love me like none other. You love me. Thank You.
Thank You for seeking me out and finding me. You did in fact reach me,
and now I am Yours. Help me to find others. Help me to see the
worth You see in them. The worst of the worse, You love, why, once
again, I don't quite understand, but You do. Help me to have a
heart that is like Yours. And finally, thank You
for all You have done in my
life, and all You will continue to do, through Christ our Lord I pray.
