on self worth

Satan will tell you that your worth lies in how many zeroes your pay check ends in, or how many women you’ve held in your arms, or how many square feet your house contains.

If he’s feeling clever he will tell you your worth lies in how much time you spend with your family, or how many lives you’ve touched, or how many hours you spend helping other people.

If he’s feeling even more clever he will tell you your worth lies in how hard you try to deny your wants and desires, or how much money you’ve given to the poor.

If he’s feeling extra clever he might tell you your worth lies in how well you know the Bible, or what good sermons you can give.

Jesus tells you your worth lies in something that can never be changed, can never be improved on, and can never be taken from you: his own goodness, given to you to wear like a warm coat.

Jesus tells me my worth lies in what he finished at the cross.

No one can take away my worth or your worth if that’s where we put it.
