Value in the Eye of the Beholder - Part 2

In Value in the Eye of the Beholder, - Part 1, I talked about how auctions show that most things are valuable to someone somewhere.    From a spiritual perspective, all people have value.  God believes that.  Jesus sacrificed himself and died for us while we were yet sinners and doing whatever seemed right to us.   

You make not look right to your own self.   You may feel like you do not have worth because of the circumstances you were born in or the choices you have made.  …But God has the power to redeem and restore.    Do you remember I said in my previous post that even broken things are sold on eBay? There is a buyer who knows what to do with the broken parts.  God is that buyer who paid a price for us. Read 1 Corinthians 6:20.

We belong to God and He knows how to work with our raw material.  Others may be unwilling to deal with your raw material.    They may look at you and see nothing, but God sees you.  You are the apple of His eye.  He beholds value and beauty when He looks at you.  Surrender to Him and be prepared to be made whole.  He is willing to work on your behalf like no one else.
