Worth It

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Why is it that we quickly forget our value and worth? This happens often when we have kind of pinned our worth on a person, position or thing or when we look around to compare ourselves to others.

We must stop looking for our worth to be reflected on us by something exterior that isn’t God. We have to stop apologizing for being unique. We need to stop measuring our worth with a plastic mini-ruler that can snap in three seconds.

“The price paid determines the value,” Dr. Tony Evans said.

God paid the ultimate price for us. Just like in Beauty and the Beast, love can change our ugliness and make us into the royalty we actually are, through Him. God’s love takes everything that is ugly in us, and He transforms us into who we should be. (Paraphrase of Dr. Tony Evans).

You don’t need to prove anything. God already paid a high price and determined that you are worth it.
