Seems this world measures worth by things that are fickle and fleeting: richness, beauty, physique, the size of your house, the size (or apparent size?) of your bank account. Leads to so much competition and frustrating and depression! A mom’s worth is measured even worse: way you feed your babies, way you put your babies to sleep, how big your pinterest boards are, how clean your house is, baking daily with kdis, putting kids in all sorts of activities. How can anyone keep up with that?! And why do we try to find our worth in what the world says is good?
In God our worth is great! God sees our worth for what it really is – enough to die for! He looks at us and sees us created in His image. That alone gives us worth.! He loves us so much He sent His son to die for us! How can anything compare to that?!
So in this world that wants us to measure our self-worth but unattainable standards, I say, do away with the horrid concept of self-worth! I’m going with God-worth! And to Him, I’m worth His life!
