WEIGHT IN GOLD

Read: Lamentations 4

Key Verse: “How the precious sons of Zion, once worth their weight in gold, are now considered as pots of clay, the work of a potter’s hands!” - Lamentations 4:2

Have you heard the phrase worth their weight in gold? God sees the value of every person and the potential too. He is our Maker and has designed us with purpose. When we listen to Him, follow His lead, make decisions that honor Him, have His character evident in our daily lives, and serve Him we choose a lifestyle that is worth its weight in gold. The Israelites traded in the gold for fool’s gold.

On a recent family trip, one of our children discovered a rock that had been spray painted gold. Convinced that a rare treasure had been found, the rock was held with the expectation it was worth millions of dollars. As parents, we dropped the news that the rock was worth absolutely nothing. A think fake gold layer has no monetary value. Have you ever felt ripped off by the world or fallen for sin’s deceitfulness? Ask God for His grace to help you live today in such a way that you are worth your weight in gold!
