“But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us,” (Romans 5:8, AMP).
While sweeping the patio one day, I found a coin. I picked it up and noticed how grimy it was. I felt it was not worth cleaning, and I threw it away.
Almost immediately, the thought occurred to me that though the coin was thoroughly dirty, it had the same value it always did.
So, too, I thought, Jesus Christ washed my sins away, and I remain a worthy child of the One who first created me. I felt sad as I thought of people whose circumstances or way of life impedes us seeing their true worth. As a result, we fail to offer them our assistance.
What would have become of us if the Lord had dealt with us as I first dealt with the coin?
I give thanks that God sees our worth and never throws anyone away.
