Bible reading: 1 Peter 2:4-10, John 15:15.

Memory Verse: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)

How valuable are we? In the eyes of others your worth can be variable depending on what they can get out of you, but in the eyes of God you’re worth more than what anyone thinks you are.

Economics teaches us that the value of a commodity is dependent on how much someone would be willing to pay for it. If we follow this principle when determining our self-worth then, we are worth a whole lot. God was willing to pay the price of the Blood of His only begotten Son, just for you!

So, if you are that valuable to God, why do you feel worthless? It’s too much of a reality to deny that people are losing hope, losing peace and losing their very lives to the lie that they aren’t that valuable.

Lie No 1: You are what people around you say you are.

People around us can look at us and see the bad things in us, and even though their observations are accurate, that doesn’t mean what they say is true. The things that we do and the things that people see us do, do not reflect our worth at all. It may show our performance, our responsibility and our trustworthiness, but never our worth. God has determined your worth, and He says you’re worthy to be called His sons and daughters. Sons and daughters never don’t place their worth based on what outsiders think.

“You’re who the Bible says you are despite your shortcomings!”

Quote: Let no man despise thy youth – Bible
