It constantly amazes me that man has the tendency to swing to opposites sides of truth, whether it is theological, political, or philosophical. Some go to the extreme left, while others go to the extreme right. If I were to ask you, “What are you worth?” some would immediately respond with how much money is in the bank, the houses they own around the world, all the expensive toys they have, etc. That is the materialistic view but is that what they are really worth?
Then there is the total opposite where man thinks he is worthless because he does not have much (if any) of this world’s goods. If a man is poor, does that mean he is Worthless? To find what man is truly worth we must go to the source of all truth – God’s Word. In Psalm 8:4 we read, “what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” Good question! Why should the God of the universe even notice us! And that is my point.
The very fact that God cares for us show just how much we are really worth! Just the fact that we are God’s creation makes us priceless. Mark 8:37 The fact that God loves us and sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins gives us extreme worth. The fact is that whether you are a have or a have not, rich or poor, famous and unknown you only have worth if you have a personal relationship with God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
What are you worth? More than you can imagine.
