Worth It

Teri and I are pretty careful about what we purchase. The more it costs, the more consideration and comparison shopping. Do we really need it, or is it a want? Is it really worth that much money?

What if you wanted something and it was going to cost you a literal “arm and a leg”? Of course, most (maybe all?) would never consider such a purchase. It would have to be more valuable than anything we purchased previously. I’m guessing most would not give an “arm and a leg” to purchase their house debt free. But what if your arm and leg would actually save your child’s life? Would you give your arm and a leg for that?

Consider now that Jesus Christ gave His life to purchase you and me. Not only His life, but suffered a cruel and horrible death to redeem us by His blood. My brothers, as you look at your life, since salvation, have you been a worthwhile purchase? Have you been a faithful servant or busy about your pleasure? Maybe you have given 80% to being a faithful servant and only kept 20% for your pleasure? 95% and 5%? May we be faithful 100% of the time. Pitch the TV, movies, news and sports. Invest in your family and be used of the Lord.

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
