Satan has sold us a bill of goods…

Satan has sold us a bill of goods. He has managed to convince us that human worth ought to be gauged on appearance or productivity. If you can hit a home run, hang a PHD on the end of your name, drive a fancy sports car or command a six-figure salary, then you are somebody. That’s what counts isn’t it? If that is the bottom line, then a lot of us are left discounted and cheap. But where does that leave the aged? the handicapped? the uneducated? What about the unborn baby? They don’t stack up so well, do they? But Jesus came to set things straight. Jesus came to reaffirm the value of every human being and to tell us that value is not based on good looks or great performance. It is inborn. I count and you count because we both are made in the image of God. That is why Jesus singled out those Satan had hung bargain-basement price tags on and reaffirmed their worth. We all count with God. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
