God Says I'm Valuable

In summary of Luke 12:24 it says, "Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!"

Bottom Line:
Consider the birds: they neither plant, harvest or store food.  God feeds them.  And we are more valuable to to God than birds.

What this means to me:
It is comforting to know that God thinks I am worth much more than birds, who he lovingly looks after.  In life, its important not to confuse self-worth with net-worth.  My overall value has nothing to do with what I may own.  God paid a high price for me, so to him I am priceless. How priceless is explained by Jesus who told three stories explained by Luke in chapter 15; the lost son, the lost coin, and the lost sheep.  Each has the same conclusion, I am worth pursuing, I matter and he rejoices in my turning to him!  In summary, since I matter to God, I am valuable. I’m valuable because he loves me and has accepted me in Christ.
