God Doesn't make Junk - Our Value during the Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

When I was growing up, we attended Centenary United Methodist Church in Danville, KY. For 19 years when I would leave my Sunday School class on the 2nd floor, hanging over the stairs was a huge banner, "God Doesn't Make Junk." My best guess is some Methodist hippies back in the 60's made that banner. I am thankful I saw that almost every Sunday from 1969 through 1988.


For many of us, we define ourselves by what we do and what we accomplish. Some times, we can define ourselves based on how much other people value us, or their opinion of us.


God's Word says we are created in His image (Genesis 1:27) and He put us together inside of our mother's womb (Psalm 139:13). According to Psalm 139:14, we are fearfully & wonderfully made by God, and that His creations are wonderful or marvelous. When you read those words that is God's opinion of YOU. That is His value of you. And, He values you and me so much, He sent His Son to pay for our sins.


If my self worth comes from being a football coach, I am in big trouble right now. Sure, I try to keep our football family connected during this time. But, the number of football workouts & practices since March 11th... ZERO. My value doesn't come from a football, my job, or my paycheck. My value comes from WHO created me.... and You.


And, that person you see that maybe you think you are better than they are.... their value comes from the same place as your value and it is the same.


And, what is even better...since we are created in God's image, we CAN solve the problems we are facing right now. We are capable. We are far from hopeless.


Over the years, during some of the toughest times, I have had to remember that banner hanging up that I would see every Sunday. I can't put into words how thankful I am for that repetitive visual that I needed and would help me for my entire lifetime.


Don't ever forget.....
