April 20 Sunday Reflection: Your Real Worth

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood…a people belonging to God…”
-1Peter2:9

Readings :
Acts 6:1-7
Psalm 33:1-2, 4-5, 18-19(22)
1 Peter 2:4-9
John 14:1-12

If you were a commodity, how much do you think you’d be worth? Fifty million? One hundred thousand? Or just enough to buy two movie tickets with a popcorn and a drink?

In accounting, there’s a term called net worth. It’s simply the difference between total assets and total liabilities. Assets- like cash, stocks, bonds and properties- are things you own. Liabilities- like loans, credit card balances and mortgage- are those that you owe.

We are living in a world that measures success and the value of a person in terms of net worth. According to Forbes.com, in 2006, Henry Sy had a total net worth of $1.5 billion: Lucio Tan, $1.7 billion; and Jaime Zobel de Ayala, $1.3 billion(Filipino billionaires).

Do you sometimes feel that you are less of a person because you have a small bank account? Or because you drive a 2—year-old, run-by-faith vehicle? Or wear clothes bought in U.K. (ukay-ukay -used clothes)? As children of God, we are worth more than the most expensive jewelry, car or mansion that money can buy. We are priceless. God has chosen us as His very own. Our worth is based on what God does and not on what we have or what we do.
-Judith Concepcion

Reflection:
How much is your worth? Remember that your value comes from being one of God’s children, not from what you own or have achieved.

Prayer:
Thank you, Lord, for calling me Your own
