Luke 12:6-7 – Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Have you ever redeemed a glass bottle for its recycling value? If so, maybe you received 10 cents. How valuable do you think you are? An honest answer is that it depends. To your employer, your may be replaceable. To your family, you are dear. To your church, your are invaluable, and to God? Well, Jesus said that we are worth a great deal. Did not God send His Son to give His life for the children of God? Jesus was one of a kind and pure and wonderful. If you imagine that Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God, was given for the redemption of the saints, then they must be of incredible value to God.
Even though our sins would otherwise make us inglorious and a shame to God, His children are covered by the righteousness of Christ. He gave you life, and He sustains you. He never rests or forgets us. He is ever faithful and merciful. Even though we are sinful and must disappoint Him regularly, He loves us. What a Great God! Praise Him, and live like a child of God, a child of the King! You are valuable.
