God Sees Value

Scripture reading

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they?
–Matthew 6:26

Thought of the Day

In the movie, GOOD WILL HUNTING, the main character Will, is a genius. His whole life, he has been able to look at things and see them differently than most people. It was hard for some to understand him. In one scene, he is trying to explain how he sees things, to Skyler, his girlfriend. He asked her if she played the piano. She replied, that she did, but not very well. Will asked her what she saw when she looked at a piano. At first she said, just a piano, but after he pressed her some more she finally replied, that she saw chopsticks. Will went on to explain that some people see different things. Beethoven looked at his piano and saw a magnificent symphony. Mozart looked and saw his Requiem. Rembrandt looked at a blank canvas and saw one of his great masterpieces. Michelangelo looked at the giant piece of marble and saw his young King David.
Guess what? God looks at us, broken and dirty and ugly and sees His creation. He sees value when we feel worthless. He sees beauty. He sees Himself in us.

Prayer

God, Help me to see myself through Your eyes. Amen.
