Crumbs Off The Table - 1

You Are Priceless
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $100 note in the room of 200 participants and asked. ³Who would like to have this $100 note?´ Hands started going up. He said, ³I am going to give this $100 note to one of you ± but first, let me do something.´ He proceeded to crumple the $100 note. He then asked, ³Who still wants it?´ Still the hands were up in the air. ³Well,´ he replied, ³what if I do this?´ He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it in the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and filthy. ³Who still wants it?´ All hands went up into the air! ³My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the Currency note, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $100. Dear friend, many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. Someone might have hurt us deeply. Our own sins might weigh heavy on our shoulders and scar us. We might feel as though we are worthless: but no matter what happened or what will happen, remember that for God above, you will never lose your value.´ ³For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead. Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you.´ Isaiah.43:3-5 And the above was no vain promise made by an unknown entity. In due time God kept His word; He showed how special you really are to Him by giving you THE most precious gift He could ever give; For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, That whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John.3:16 Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. But most of all you are priceless to God. The worth of your life comes, not in what you do or whom you know, but by WHO YOU ARE. You are special ± don¶t ever forget it!
