Knowing You Are Valuable
God’s Greatest Investment Is You
People devote hours to looking for the biggest profits around. They rush to and fro searching for the next Twitter, the latest high-tech innovation, the sure-fire, can’t-miss, triple-your-money-in-two weeks stock offering.
Stop to think about an even better investment: You.
The first book in the Bible, Genesis, tells the story of God investing His best in human beings. You and everyone around you bears His image. This is a reality that is take-your-breath-away awesome. You are the one God wants to spend time with. All His hopes and dreams for this world boil down to a single individual. You. God wants to talk to you. He wants you to share your hopes, dreams, fears, and your goals in life with Him, one-on-one.
If the greatest Being in the universe thinks this highly of you, maybe it’s time you started thinking more highly of yourself. Try investing time in developing a relationship with the One who loves you so much. While you’re at it, spend a little more time with family and friends. They will enrich your life far more than a 100 percent return on your monetary investments.
God’s care for His creation didn’t stop in Genesis, either. Centuries later Paul talked with Greek philosophers in Athens. Paul spoke of a God who gives people life, breath, and everything else. God did this so we would seek after Him, reach out for Him and find Him. Even then, Paul said, “He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:27-28, NKJV).
Wow! God not only created you, He is still right there. Ready to invest more of His power, wisdom, grace and love to anyone who reaches out to Him. Stock and bond traders can only wish they could offer a deal this good.
A Challenge For You…
Read Acts 17:22-29. List three qualities that Paul said God possesses. Explain how this affects your view of God. Now list three desires or positive attributes that you possess. How did they get there? Did you ever take time to thank God for giving you them? Why not do that right how?
