Late one night, I watched a particular television series that dealt with a group of people who were incarcerated. One of the characters began to explain his story and the reason for his incarceration. He stated that he entered a home and saw some baseball cards of which he did not believe to be worth more than $100. He stole the deck and afterwards was arrested and charged with grand larceny. When I heard this I immediately cried injustice. However, one of the baseball cards in the deck was worth way more than $100 but was worth a staggering $300,000. The card he stole was a one of a kind, a classic.
How often do we disregard people because we don’t deem them worthy? How many times have we given someone only what we think they are able to handle because we are unable to see the true potential that lies within? How often have we mishandled relationships because we were not able to recognize the greatness in the individual?
You can’t expect others to always know your worth. Sometimes people get us mixed up because we are with the wrong deck of people. How much are you worth to the World? After all, you are a one of a kind, a classic.
Point: Never underestimate the value of yourself and others. What may not seem worth much to you is valuable to someone else. God created each of us as a one of a kind. In fact, there is no one on the planet like you in every way. No two persons go through the exact same thing and accomplish the same things in the exact same way. We are extremely unique and priceless to God. Value is determined by the owner and the one willing to purchase. If that is the case, then God is our creator and Christ is our redeemer. How much are you worth? You are greater than you know!
