As a child, I would draw pretend checks and dollars. I would hold on to them as if they were real money. To me, my drawings held value. Sometimes I’d give them to my parents. Can you imagine that? A 6-year-old handing you a check for one million dollars. The child believes it’s worth a million, but in the world, it’s just a piece of paper with scribbles. That memory called to mind Matthew 10 and our relationship with God.
In God’s eyes, we are valuable, more valuable than the world would assess us to be. Jesus taught that the sparrow wasn’t worth much in the market, but God knows when that very same sparrow falls to the ground. God is there and watching because he cares. The sparrow has value in His eyes. If He cares for the sparrow, how much more does He care for you? How much more valuable are you in His eyes? Just like coins have value in our hands, you have value in God’s hands. Let Him give you value. Let Him use you for His glory.
