value

“God sees us with the eyes of a Father. He sees our defects, errors, and blemishes. But He also sees our value. What did Jesus know that enabled Him to do what He did? Here’s part of the answer: He knew the value of people. He knew that each human being is a treasure. And because He did, people were not a source of stress, but a source of joy.” ~Max Lucado, Grace for the Moment

Today i pray that we would see beyond frustration to the value of each person. Beyond their flaws, beyond their abilities. God, we all have value to someone, but not to all. But every person has value to You. You see beyond what we do, beyond who we are, to the core of who You created. You see our worth, that we are worth, that we are worth dying for, that we are worth sacrifice. We do not always see that in ourselves or in others.

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.” Eph 2:1-2

Today, i pray we would see Your value in every person we meet, in every stressful flaw and situation, beyond the surface and to the heart. Today i pray we remember our value in You and that it will help us live each moment seeing the value and the worth of others that come across our path throughout each moment this day.

“But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.” Eph 2:4-5

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Eph 2:8-10

God sees your value – now it is time to live your life seeing the value in others.
