We know, deep down, that each person is precious. When someone close to us dies, we feel their loss very deeply. Although sometimes life is treated as if it’s cheap, we will also go to great lengths to save just one person. I still remember the little girl who fell down a well in Texas. The incident happened in 1987 and the whole world watched live on TV a massive 58 hour rescue attempt. Jessica Morales survived and now has children of her own.
The world didn’t care about Jessica because she had achieved great things. She hadn’t done anything to deserve the attention. She was only 18 months old. Most of the world hadn’t even met her. But we all had a deep sense of her value. We wanted her to get alive and well.
Like Jessica you are inherently valuable to God just because you are you. Full stop!
