DAY 288 OF 365 IN 2021
YOU ARE A MASTERPIECE
Luke 12:6-7 What is the price of five sparrows? A couple of pennies? Not much more than that. Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And he knows the number of hairs on your head! Never fear, you are far more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows.
With too many things to remember, it is no surprise there are planning apps and reminders to keep us up to date. Nonetheless, there are still many things we forget quite often. From our text today, one of them is our position with God.
We seem to forget that we are the crowning of God’s creation, that we are the masterpieces in His collection. In other words, our value has probably not been hammered out well enough for us to truly come to appreciate it. Thus, it is no wonder like His hearers, our standards of comparison had become so dampened that Jesus had to reemphasise how precious we are.
Beloved, sometimes, the picture and realities we find ourselves in do appear to hint that we may be less valuable. Something, we are even tempted to believe our lives are worth nothing. To anyone thinking along those lines, soaking in words that do not tell our full story, the words of Jesus to you is this
“you are a treasure of inestimable value and your prize tag would certainly beat your wildest imagination. You are a masterpiece in God’s collection.”
