Your Price Tag

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” —John 8:32

Our view of ourselves and our sense of worth are often determined by the opinions of others. Sometimes it’s accurate and helpful. But not always.

If, for some reason, the person we’re listening to is looking through a defective “lens,” his or her vision will be distorted. Some of us have lived all our lives in an emotional prison because we have accepted what a false, “broken” mirror said to us about ourselves.

It’s conceivable that someone who didn’t recognize or appreciate fine art would toss a masterpiece into the trash. Would that make the painting any less valuable? Not at all. The true worth would be seen when an art collector spotted the painting and said, “That is a priceless piece. I am willing to pay any amount to acquire it.”

When God sent His only Son, Jesus, to bear our sins on the cross, He put a price tag on us— He declared the value of our souls to be greater than the value of the whole world. Whose opinion will you accept?
