God Says I Am Valuable

God feeds the birds and you are far more valuable to Him than any birds! Luke 12:24 (NLT)

"If you calculate the cost of creating each cell in your body it would be about six thousand trillion dollars. You are priceless. "

How much are you worth?  I'm not talking about money.  We confuse self-worth with net worth, but they are very different.  Your value has nothing to do with your valuables. 

How much are you worth?

I once read an article in the Journal of Hospital Practice that calculated how much each of the enzymes and hormones and all the different things in your body are worth.  The author added them up and if you are an average size person you are worth six million fifteen dollars and forty-four cents ($6,ooo,o15.44) based on your weight.  (Some of us are worth more!) 

You're a six-million dollar man or a six-million dollar woman! The article's author also estimated that, if you calculate the cost of creating each cell in your body, it would be about six thousand trillion dollars. 

You are priceless. 

Jesus thought this was so important that he took a whole chapter of the Bible to talk about it. In Luke 15 he tells three stories -- the lost son, the lost coin, and the lost sheep.  It's the same punch line in each story.  Jesus says, "You matter!" 

You matter to God.  You are valuable.  God says you are valuable because he loves you and he has accepted you in Christ.
