How much do you think you are worth? I am not talking about net worth, but self-worth. We should never confuse valuables with value as a person. To answer the question, how much do you think you are worth—We need to ask another question, what determines value?

There are two things that determine value in life: Value depends on what someone is willing to pay for something. A house, a car, a piece of art, a baseball card is only worth whatever someone is willing to pay for them. Value also depends on who has owned an item in the past. The recent auctions of Jacqueline Kennedy’s and Princes Diana’s personal possessions reveals that value is enhanced by previous owners.

Based on these two criteria, what’s your value? How much are you worth? The Scriptures say, “You have been bought and paid for by Christ, so you belong to him” (1 Cor. 7:23 NIV). Who owns you?  What was paid for you? Christ owns you and He paid for you with his life. God exchanged his own Son for you. The cross proves your value. God says I love you this much—That Jesus gave his life for you.
