Worth

29 December 2018
‘So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.’

In the world, our worth is often calculated by what we own, what we do, and even how many likes we get on our social media posts. But in God’s kingdom our worth is already defined, and it’s unchanging. God sees us all as valuable. As His children, we’re loved, known, accepted, and worthy. And that doesn’t change if we mess up, or do something great – we’re still worth the same to God. Also, God cares more about what we give away than what we own. He calls us to be generous and sacrificial, whether that’s with our possessions, money, time, or gifts. One of the most famous Bible passages about our worth is found in Matthew 10. It says: ‘Two sparrows cost only a penny, but not even one of them can die without your Father’s knowing it.  God even knows how many hairs are on your head. So don’t be afraid. You are worth much more than many sparrows’ (vv.29-31 NCV). Isn’t that an amazing thought? God knows us so well that He even knows how many hairs are on our heads. He knows all about His creation, and that includes us. He sees us all as individuals. He understands us better than we understand ourselves. When Jesus was saying these words, He was sending out the disciples to tell others about Him. We can find the idea of evangelising scary, but when we understand our identity, worth, and how much we’re loved, we’re more confident to go and share our faith, knowing that God’s with us every step of the way.

 

What Now?

Take someone out for coffee, and share your faith with them. If you get nervous at any point, ask God to remind you how much you’re worth to Him.
