Thought for the Week – Your Worth

Hey you! Yes, you! Sitting here reading this blog, you might be feeling down. You might be feeling lonely, unloved, ugly, or just generally rotten. I have a message for you! You are worth so much, and not only to people here on Earth.

You are worth so much that God sent His one and only Son to die for you, so that you could be redeemed and free from guilt!

You are worth dying for. Because Jesus died for you, you have been offered an amazing gift! When we choose to accept the gift of salvation, we are granted life. Not just life here on earth, but a life in heaven.

Your worth does not come from what other people say about you. They may say you are stupid, ugly, or worthless, but God says: “You are My child, and you are beautiful and special to Me.”

Your worth does not come from the way you look. Your outward appearance does not define you, your heart does. If you have a heart of grace that seeks to follow God’s will, then you will shine with a beauty that only God can give.

You are worth more than your past. When you accept God’s gift, you are forgiven, set free, and washed white as snow. Your past sins are just that, past. And you can look to the future knowing that God has set you free.

You are worth more than gold, silver, jewels, or any other precious thing on Earth. God has claimed you as His own. Never forget that.

    I have to say thank you for posting this today. It’s my birthday today, and even though I’m not really feeling any of the negative thoughts mentioned in your post, it encouraged me greatly, and I will have to try to remember this for the future. (Btw I love your blog!)
