How Do You Treat Something Priceless?

Do you think of other people as valuable?

How valuable? Would you consider them priceless?

Just imagine, what if you could say you held in your hand a small item, a one-of-a-kind, totally unique, and personally made by God Himself? How would you treat it?

Would you hold it carefully, caress it, watch over it?

Would you toss it in the trash, make fun of it, or abuse it?

Are we not unique? Are we not “fearfully and wonderfully made” by God? Are we not valuable beyond compare? Did God not offer His own Son as a ransom for our souls?

For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb. – 1 Peter 1:18-19 CSB

Then why do we treat each other the way we do?

We should treat each other as priceless because we are!

  1. I’m in the “such a worm as I” camp.

  2. Amen! You’re awesome, Anthony.

  3. Angie Reinecke

    Amen!!!

  4. Humans are created in the image of God. Therefore, our value is infinite.

  5. Do you see others as valuable. I believe that is a core question to be asked at the beginning of every marriage counselling session. Taking the time to value others is fundamental to Christianity and mental stability.
