Happy Jesus Day:
Which is more critical, Self-worth or Self-value? These are two related terms that are often used interchangeably. Having a sense of self-worth means valuing yourself, and understanding self-value imply that you are worthy. Let’s look at these two words, “Value and Worth” The worth of something will always remain the same, whereas the value of something can fluctuate depending on the person. In the Bible, and still today, not everyone views Jesus as valuable, yet Jesus’s worth never changes. In a word, He’s everything. Jesus tells us that following Him is worth it all (Matthew 16:25). Jesus was secure in who He is, and even when the enemy attacked His sense of self-worth (Matthew chapter 4), it carried no weight because Jesus knew exactly who He was. What is your worth to God? Your worth is Jesus’ own life. Jesus’ worth is fixed and doesn’t change depending on the opinion of others; your worth is also set. This means your worth never changes to God. Your worth is rooted in something much more profound than someone’s opinion of you; your worth is rooted in the unwavering belief in God.
