How Much are You Worth?

Find Your True Value!

Do you sometimes feel worthless? Or, at times, have you been slighted or treated as though you were of little value?
Should we value some people more/less than others?
And how should we set a value upon each other?

Let's open the Bible and find some answers.
Remember to pray and ask God to give us wisdom before we read His word.

How much does God care for us? And how much does He value us?

Matthew 10:29-31
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

God cares for his creation (the sparrows in this case) so much! In fact not even one sparrow dies and falls on the ground without God noticing it. But to us sparrows seem so small and worthless, in fact in the Bible times two sparrows were sold for a farthing (less then one cent)!
If God values the sparrows so much, how much does He care for, and value us? Are not we of more value than many sparrows? Yes! In fact, God knows so much about us that even every hair on our head is numbered!

But how much are you and I truly worth? And what value should we place upon each other?

Often we'll look at the work someone is doing, and if they're doing a poor job, perhaps always making mistakes, then we view that person as of little value.
But is this the correct way of seeing value in someone?

In a friendship, if one person is not showing kindness, sympathy or love to the other, is it because they don't really value or appreciate that person as they should?

Think about it, if we truly saw the value of people as God does, would we still treat each other the way we do?

What value does God place upon us? Remember the verse we read earlier.

"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father." Think of it, not one of these little brown sparrows that are caroling forth their praises to God will fall to the ground without the notice of the heavenly Father. Not one of these little brown sparrows that the boys so ruthlessly kill, drops to the ground but his eye marks its fall. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." If God cares for a sparrow that has no soul, how will he care for the purchase of the blood of Christ? One soul is worth more than all the world. For one soul Jesus would have passed through the agony of Calvary that that one might be saved in his kingdom. "Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." {RH, May 3, 1892 par. 8}

And this is the key to seeing and understanding the value of you and me and all other people in the world, that is, to see our value in light of what Jesus did to save us!

Isaiah 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

God says that he will make a man, that is you and me, more precious than fine gold! (Ophir was a place famous for its gold). And truly, when we look at the greatness of the price paid to save us it is much, much more precious than gold!

How much Jesus loves us! Think about how Jesus, the great powerful Creator, became a man and walked among us, and then was crucified in the hands of those He had created!! And He did it because he loved and valued us so much, that He wanted to save us from our sins! So are we not of far greater value than anything in this world?

The worth of a human soul can be estimated only by the light reflected from the cross of Calvary. ... It was the joy set before Christ in accomplishing so great salvation, that led him to submit to shame, agony, and death. How do all the treasures and the glories of earth sink into insignificance when compared with the value of a human soul! {ST, February 16, 1882 par. 17}

Lets remember how much we are of value in God's eyes! And remember to be kind and loving to all the people in this world because of what Jesus has done for us, and the great worth He has place on us all.

Very blessed. In fact, I've used verse 29 in a eulogy about a special dog that died 10 years ago and again in a story about a special mouse that I lost this year at only 3 months old. I know most Christians believe they don't have an afterlife, that any animals in Heaven and the Kingdom would be all new ones. However, I'm standing on promises like Ephesians 3:20 and others like how he will reconcile all things in earth to Himself. More tomorrow.

Great message.Thanks

I love the message that you are trying to share about our worth, and there are many Scripture passages that speak about our worth in Christ. I'm glad you used Matt. 10:29-31. However, you completely took the Isaiah 13:12 passage out of context. It does not speak to our worth at all, what it speaks to is judgment of sinners and actually means that God will judge and destroy sinners, in the last days, to the point that mankind's "presence" will be rarer than fine gold on the earth. Better passages that speak on our worth would be passages that talk about God making us heirs, and what He does for us. For instance, Ephesians 2:4-10, Titus 3:4-7, John 1:12-13, Ephesians 1:3-14. You could even use Lamentations 4:2 if you understand as children of God, we are worth more than gold. Please be careful when using Scripture that you use it correctly and not just try to make it fit for the purpose of it sounding great in articles. Those of us that teach and write will be held accountable for what we say.

but this says that a specific value can be assessed on a human life and that god values us as we value objects like gold does that mean god sees us as objects or currency? is god a capitalist?

I've been struggling with depression for sometime now. Praise God he led me to a Christian therapist who really has encouraged me to return to my source for a "renewed mind". Reading articles such as this help to feed my spirit and mind so that I can remember God's love is what measures my worth. And HIS love is endless.

In my lifetime, I have faced persecution for my faith in the Lord, and my constant need to surround myself, by the power of God's spiritual beauty, my fight for my freedom, has lead to my incarceration within the medical system in Canada, which persists, that the science proves, there is no God, and that the Lords freedom's shall not be known by the people, for if they know their freedoms, the fight for righteousness shall begin, for a better world, to be lived with the Lord, and the leadership that shall guide the world into a life, that was intended for God's people, and the Rain of the Lord, for years to come, which will continue, as an infinity. For if it is infinity, they fear, it is infinity, they will never find, for the religious greatness, is the continuation of an essence, that you cannot argue with, due to a greater power, of the guidance of all that is created in the image of Perfection!!!

The Scientific value of man is just 0.20 cents. Thus from the calcium etc in our borns which can make just one pencil which costs 20 cents. But because of the cross we are worth Christ coming to redeem us from sin by His precious blood.
Imagine the value of an elephant trophy. Itis over US$80 000 but Jesus did not die for animals but for you and me. No matter how valueless unGodly peaople can view you and me. To Him we are more precious than the gold of Orphia Isaih 13:12

Our Father ,(Jesus dad )Jesus gave His only begotten Son to die upon the Cross for me (you) when He had done no sin/wrong, but He loved me(us) so much that He gave His life for me(us),and rose the third day, that we can have eternal life. I am nothing without Jesus but with Jesus all things are possible, I belong to Him, I am a conquer , I am ambassador, I am a child of God, I am His own ,I am who God predestined me to be, I am the child of the Most High God, I am an heir of Abraham, I am a Warrior, I am a believer who has faith in God, I am a born-again Christian, who has been washed in the blood of the Lamb, I been Redeemed, I know God is my Shepherd, my Salvation, my Father, my Rock, my Deliver my Shield, Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End, First and Last, He's everything that I am and more to my life. I love Jesus and He's all that I need. Thank You Jesus for saving me, I can't thank Him enough, also thank You for bringing me out of darkness into the light, that I can help others see the light and come to You, and ask for forgiveness, believe, confess their sins to You so that they an be saved.. It's as easy as A,B, C,--A=Ask ,B=Believe,C=Confess with your mouth, that you have sinned and you shall be saved. Your life will never be the same, now that I am a Christian, my passion burns deep inside of me to help bring/win lost souls to Jesus Christ, there's no greater calling in my life than win lost souls to Jesus Christ.

Thanks for fleshing out Matthew 10! I was looking for a passage like this. However, the verse in Isaiah isn't supporting your point. In the context of the chapter, God is making the Israelites "scarce" and "rare" (or dead) by way of the Babylonian invasion.

"And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the Lord by thy estimation. And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary. And if it be a female,then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels. And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels. And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver. And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels." (Leviticus 27:1-7)
