How Do You Treat Something Priceless?

Anthony has had many good thoughts lately (I think he has been listening a little better to God!), hence my sharing more of his thoughts.l

I like this one for a couple reasons: 1) This is the reason Christians should NOT be racists, and 2) we can disagree with people, but this is the reason we should not hate them, seek revenge against them, nor insult them – at least not maliciously and/or consciously.

By this last statement I mean that by simply presenting the Gospel we can insult people (see 1 Corinthians 1:20-25). Sometimes the truth hurts, and people will feel insulted, offended by the truth. It is also possible that something we say will offend someone due to their own past or misconceptions that cloud their understanding. (I know it has happened to me too many times to count, both ways.)

The Recovering Legalist

Do you think of other people as valuable? How valuable? Would you consider them priceless?

Just imagine, what if you could say you held in your hand a small item, a one-of-a-kind, totally unique, and personally made by God Himself? How would you treat it?

Would you hold it carefully, caress it, watch over it?

Would you toss it in the trash, make fun of it, or abuse it?

Are we not unique? Are we not “fearfully and wonderfully made” by God? Are we not valuable beyond compare? Did God not offer His own Son as a ransom for our souls?

Then why do we treat each other the way we do?
