Yes, I am speaking to the choir – YOU. Each of us take stock of who we are and perhaps what we desire to be. We audit! Not only do we take self-audits, but at times, audit others. Generally, people are subjected to audits every day. Someone you don’t even know may observe how you walk, talk, act or approach a situation. Audits happen with and without our permission. You will leave an impression -intended or unintended.
The purpose of an audit is to determine your worth – liabilities vs. assets = a bottom line.
God determined your worth before you were born; before you were placed in time. He determined we did not meet His criteria; yet, He determined we were worth it. God determined YOU are worth His investment.
Allowing anyone else to put you in a box or discard you as insignificant, is an insult to Him. It would say that God wasted His investment. He saw every default and equated your value. He determined You could be an asset. Your balance sheet has its liabilities; but your net worth is so valuable to Him that He created you UNIQUE.
So today, it is not to brag, but it is to remember how gracious He is –
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 New International Version (NIV)
“Make me worthy of your investment.”
