Worth is one of those topics that just can't be discussed enough. It seems no matter how many times we grasp that our worth doesn't depend on anything we control, we always run back to our old ways. We are tempted to let our food choices, our bodies, our actions, and our achievements make us more or less valuable, but it's all in our heads.
I'll say it like it is: our worth comes through Christ and Christ alone. We are worthy because we are humans, made by God and knit together by him in our mothers' wombs. No matter how many good things we do, and no matter how much we think we've screwed up our life, our worth can't and won't change.
On the cross, Jesus says I choose you, and He dies so that we can have life and live it to the full. Known, loved, adored, and provided for by the loving Creator that made it all happen in the first place.
Dear friend, you are beloved. Know that nothing you do can change that, and believe that you are worth more than rubies and pearls.
What areas do you tend to get your worth from? How do you remind yourself that your worth comes from God?
