Looking across this wide world of humanity, there are well over a thousand little differences that keep us each apart. From the way we think, to our personal preferences and our outward appearances, sometimes it can seem like we aren't one bit the same.
But deep in our hearts there's a common bond that we all hold, from the youngest of us all to those who have grown old. This common bond that we can all partake in, is the simple desire to see that we hold value.
We crave to be known and long to be heard. We desire to be significant and want to know in the deepest part of our hearts that it's beating isn't simply a waste.
When a human heart understands it's own significance it begins to understand that it is capable of making a difference.
When we understand that our simple life holds value, it changes every part of us.
We begin to understand that our choices will matter, our words will bring results-either good or bad, and our connections with others could change lives eternally.
The beautiful truth that the believer ought to know is that each of our hearts holds a greater value simply because of our Perfect Heavenly Father.
We were created and formed by a Master Designer, who breathed His eternal breath into our lungs for a grand and beautiful purpose-the ultimate glory of our God and our own greatest good.
Our value isn't significant simply to make ourselves feel good, our value is what can wake us up to the reality that we were made for an eternal purpose. Because the truth is friend, we've never been able to do one little thing to ever increase our significance. Apart from Christ we're an awful mess of sin, but because of His grace He has lifted us from a destructive fate and placed on our heads the undeserving value of a chosen child of God.
So today, you have a choice-the choice to remind humanity that their lives actually hold real and eternal value. You can remind them that there's a weight to their significance that's greater than what they ever realized. You can be used to open up their eyes to a life of real fulfillment by introducing them to a God who longs to make them His own.
Our world likes to rush on through, but today, we can choose to pause long enough to make sure that those around us know that they are valuable in the eyes of a perfect and holy God. This is our most worthwhile pursuit.
Your words and your actions today will communicate to those around you how valuable you believe them to be, whether you are intending to or not.
Today, let's be among the world changing few who dare to live a different way-a higher way!
