That which was so valuable just 24 hours before…
Now… 80% off.
The wonder and majesty of the season, the lights in all their Sparkle and array of colours, each decoration telling a story perhaps as each tree stood decorated in all its Glory.
My Home stood seemingly stark and bare, only in contrast to that which had occupied it for many weeks during this Christmas season.
The bucket of lights, decorations and garland sat filled haphazardly with all that had dazzled and glimmered and represented the season. The Collection still sparkled but seemed to have lost the majestic intent.
It reminded me of walking into a second hand store, What was once a high price paid in decades past, is now less. 40…50.. 80% off. The same piece, now less valuable because society, season, has deemed it less worthy because it may not be in style anymore… not new… colour is off… etc.
As my eyes fell on each discount sign as I travelled through a new season being created in the store, I couldn’t help but think of how price gets determined and value gets placed onto things on this planet.
Some things lose its value in an instant due to Seasons in our lives, some lose its value because of lack of usefulness and perhaps being outdated.
The things in our lives may not have changed but the value has been attached to them already.
Our worthiness may be diminished as we outgrow relationships and we are rejected… 50%… Our performance according to some may not measure up so the tag on our hearts says… 80% off.
We all age and as we do our worth in the workforce, our wisdom perhaps, gets tagged… perhaps even 90% off.
This planet will always judge us according to all these and many other factors that diminish our value, but there is One who sees us as Priceless… no matter the season… No matter our usefulness… No matter… No matter…. No matter.
How does something become valuable or even priceless?
Because of the great price that was willing to be paid.
No gold, no diamonds, or all the wealth in the world could pay for the price paid for our Ransom of our worth. He deemed us worthy because he was Worthy. And he tells us so…
“For you are bought with a great price” – Corinthians 6:20
Get really excited!
Because we will never wear a price tag…. A sale price… 80% off.. Because he who was the Priceless gift….
forever priceless ❤️
