Here's what I know: It is not what you own but who owns you that counts.
And that determines your value.
Your value as a person is not determined by what you own - or your last name - or your position or title at your company.
Your value is determined by who you are in Jesus.
Repeat that after me: "I belong to Jesus."
Years ago there was a sale of items that belonged to Elvis Presley.
One of his cars sold for $277,000.
One of his outfits sold for $113,000.
By the time the auction as over, five million dollars worth of Elvis Presley's good were sold.
By itself, was that car worth $277,000? No.
Was one of his outfits worth $113,000? No.
But it was who owned them that made them valuable.
Wrap all of that around the fact that with God in you, God owns you - you belong to Him.
You are precious to Him - so much so that He died on the cross for you - and for me.
I give God my life - God lives in me - God owns me - so to speak - and therefore I am valuable.
Say that after me, "I am valuable". "I am a child of God." "God owns me."
And walk with your head held high today - you are worth something to God - and to others.
Just a thought for a Thursday.
