We value our homes, our family, memorable objects and experiences. There is nothing wrong with this. God gave them to us to make you happy. He loves to see us happy.
But sometimes we wonder just how important we, as an individual, are.
We question our value, what we've done with our lives. Sometimes we focus on the things we've done wrong and spiral into a sadness, assuming we are worthless.
Psalm 139 says:
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
God knew there would be moments when we would question our importance. He gave us many verses in the Bible to serve as word hugs from Him.
Today is the Wednesday during the celebrated Passover week. The Bible tells us Jesus had looked at the city of Jerusalem and wept. He prayed in the garden, knowing the great sacrifice needed to be given to save us from a terrible punishment. He knew all the sins of the world would be placed on His shoulders.
Yet, because you and I are so very important to Him….He chose to do all that was required to save us. He really wants to see us and spend time with us in Heaven.
How important are you?
You are a treasure worth paying a great price. You are loved by the one who created you.
