+DEV+ What Is Your Value?

What Is Your Value?

"If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out?  How much more valuable is a man than a sheep!" (Matthew 12:11-12)
Scripture Focus: Matthew 12:9-14

How much is the human body worth? Some say that when the human body is reduced to its physical elements, it is worth $4.50. Others say the market value of living tissue, organs, marrow, blood, and all other body parts totals forty-five million dollars!

In today's passage, Jesus showed His critics the value of one person. The Mosaic Law required the Israelites to honor the Sabbath by not doing any work. But Jesus challenged them to consider that if they would save a sheep on the Sabbath, how much more valuable is a human being? Then Jesus displayed His authority by healing the man's withered hand.

At the end of His earthly ministry, Jesus once again showed the importance of people to God. He willingly gave up His life on a cross, reconciling to God all who would believe in Him. His sacrifice enables us to receive the gift of eternal life.

How much are you worth? You are so valuable that you were purchased not with silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Jesus Christ (see 1 Peter 1:18-19).

Insight: Have Others Caused You To Doubt Your Value To The Lord? You Are So Valuable To God That His Only Son Died For You.
