Jesus Honors You
You are valuable just because you exist! Remember that the next time some trickster tries to hang a bargain basement price tag on your self-worth.
Just think about the way Jesus honors you—and smile!  I do.  I smile because I know I don’t deserve a love like that.  None of us do.
When you get right down to it, any contribution any of us makes is pretty puny. All of us, even the purest of us, deserve heaven about as much as that crook on the cross did.
It makes me smile to think there’s a grinning thief walking the golden streets of heaven who knows more about grace than a thousand theologians.
No one else would have given the thief on the cross a prayer. But in the end that is all he had. And in the end, that is all it took!
No wonder they call Jesus the Savior.
