The Value of a Person

A person is not what they do. The value of a person is not the things they do to put food on their table, clothes on their back and a roof over their head. What one does, one's career/job is "valued" by supply and demand, and is changeable by fashion, need for the skill, the number of people who can do it and technology. Also, one can change one's career. Who would think a career change changed a person's value?! None of those affect the value of a person. Indeed, no man or woman can determine or change the value of any person. Only God can do that, did that. The value of a person - famous or obscure, powerful or master of none, genius or mentally handicapped - is, as trite as it sounds, Jesus. God set the value of each person at His Own Son. Maybe we should remember that when we look on another of less prestigious calling or glamorous appearance! Or when we reflect on our own value.
