What is your worth?

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20
bill. In the room of 200, he asked, Who would like this $20 bill?
Hands started going up.

He said, I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me
do this. He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.
He then asked, Who still wants it? Still the hands were up in the air.

Well, he replied, What if I do this? And he dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked
it up, now crumpled and dirty. Now who still wants it?
Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter
what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease
in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into
the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come
our way. We feel as though we are worthless.

But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never
lose your value: dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are
still priceless to God!
The worth of our lives come not in what we do or who we know,
but by WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST!

You are special-Don’t ever forget it.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 Romans 5:8

What, then, shall we say in response to this?
If God is for us, who can be against us?
 Romans 8:31
