Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Our Value to God

September 7th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is measuring our worth by how God sees us.

In Second Corinthians 10:12, the Apostle Paul wrote, “We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.”

The unwise thing about making comparisons is that they tempt us toward feelings of inferiority or superiority. King Saul became jealous of David when the crowd compared David’s victories with Saul’s victories. Their relationship broke down.

A better way to measure our worth is by understanding how God sees us. Jesus said in Luke 12:7, “the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” This sense of value frees us to share God’s love with others and treat them with respect and dignity.

Measuring our worth by how God sees us is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
