I ask you. How much are you worth? To the person across the room. To the person crossing the street, how much do you think you’re worth to them? They don’t even know you. Won’t know you exsist without acknowledgment of you being there.
Now they, they are just strangers. How much are you worth to the person sitting across the table? To the child in her room. To the husband or wife or brother or sister you greet every day. Now they, they’re your family, or your friends. They care a great deal for you I’m sure.
Now how much are you worth to God? Enough that He would give up His son for you? Enough that He saw it fitting to bring you into this life and call you His own. Enough that He desires to teach you everything He knows. To love how He loves. And walk how He walks.
Now, I ask.. How much is that person worth to you? The person crossing the street. The person across the room. They might be just strangers.. You don’t have to see them daily. So how can you invest in something you can’t see everyday?
How much is that person worth to God? The same amount as you. The same amount as me. The same amount as our family and our friends. So how do we invest in things and in people we don’t see or touch or interact with on a daily basis?
By investing into the relationship you have with God, is in turn investing into the relationships you have in your home, at your job, and in any place that you are capeable of talking with God. Talking with God means, learning how to love. It means, reaching out because someone reached out for you. It means forgiving because someone forgave you. It means learning to love, because someone loved you when you made it hard to be loved.
“I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, AND SO she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little, shows only little love.” Luke 7:47 NLT
