What a beautiful truth this verse is and one that I have been thinking deeply about lately. I spent the last two weeks doing a DEEP closet clean out and purging before the holidays, and I just got overwhelmed by the pure amount of “stuff” that was filling my life! As I cleaned out item after item that was worn once or brand new with tags, I just started wondering how I was finding my worth in this stuff and not the one who created me?!
Then I read this powerful truth above… God sees our worth in our spirit- not our stuff! He created us (read: me) for so much more than closets and drawers and hangers; he created me to love his people, share his truth, and live like Jesus. And I think we all know that Jesus wasn’t lugging around a big old traveling closet!
So in the middle of a season that’s full of giving and getting stuff, I pray that we can find our worth in the one who sees so much more in us.
