Grace and Truth and Knowing Your Worth
Where does our worth come from?
If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time you probably said, “Jesus” and possibly rolled your eyes. It’s become a rote answer. Something we say without thinking.
It’s not that we don’t believe it, it’s that it’s become a pat answer. The youth pastor at our church calls Jesus the “safe Sunday school answer.” You can answer any question with Jesus, even if you didn’t hear it and most likely be right. Even if you don’t understand it.
But in reality, Jesus is so much more.Jesus is more than a "safe, Sunday school answer" Click To Tweet
Knowing Your Worth…
I took a road trip with a friend this week (okay, a friend drove me to an out-of-town doctor appointment), and we stopped by a neat roadside store where I found a shirt I loved. They didn’t have it in my size, so I bought it for my daughter. When I got home and showed it to my husband he said he loved it, but she probably wouldn’t get it.
And I had to stop and think. My kids love Jesus, my girls especially. But do they really find their worth in Jesus?
So, when I was reading through the posts that were linked up last week and came across Debbie’s, I knew it was the one I had to share. She shares three ways to know your worth. These aren’t pat answers, they are ways to build a strong foundation.

Wow, that IS a great shirt, and may it be the message that we wear on our hearts!
Heather, what a great message to wear on a shirt! I need to have that one framed! And thank you so much for sharing my post. I’m glad it complemented the shirt. 🙂
Oh my goodness, Debbie. I was re-reading my post and caught a typo. I meant to say that your post wasn’t pat answers. I have corrected it. Please forgive my poor editing skills.
When we see our worth through the eyes of God it really does change everything else in our lives!
It really does, doesn’t it, Tiffany?
I really hope your head gets to feeling better mom!
Thanks, Sweetheart ?
