Essentially Significance

God refers to Those who fear Him as His “jewels.” Therefore, you’re His Treasure.

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. (Malachi 3:16, 17 KJV)

You are essential. You are a person of great worth. The majority of our population strives to prove the self valuable by seeking great success, by seeking to please others, and by seeking an elevated status in life.

We waste our lives trying to please others. We waste it thinking achievements acquired makes us valuable. You are indeed some body! However it isn’t in accomplishments. Our society is bent on focusing so much on what people accomplish and achievements gained that we miss the “ground zero” of our self worth, our essential significance.

Our environment is saturated with a blanket of negative events. The culture is predominantly cruel. People are bent toward evil. From good manners being abandoned, to killing others because life is not valued, to disregard clean decent living for open rebellious attitudes. Sagging pants, open promiscuity, child abuse, lying, drug and alcohol addictions are all indications of the de-valuing of the worth of mankind and even worse, the self-devaluation people foster for themselves.

You are essential. You are significant.

When you acknowledge your potential positive influence, that you are essential to our daily life activities, and how doing your part completes the puzzle of effective workmanship, we can see a glimpse of just how essential you are.

Every one is essential because every one is significant. Your significance goes beyond the investments deposited into your life. It goes beyond your education, your rank, position, and your heritage. Financial status, accomplishments and achievements add zero to your significance.

Self- worth is instilled in you because of your Creator. His intrinsic value of you is revealed in His care for you, His encouragement to you to make the right choices in life and His demonstration of love for you in the death of His only begotten Son who died for you to have a real extended life!

Instead of fighting to please your boss, family, friends, spouse, or even yourself, please Him. Your significance is enveloped in Him. When you please your Creator, you will find others pleased with you. Those who are not pleased with you, expose their true disregard for who are as a creation of God.

Bottom line – know you are somebody essentially significant not because of status or income or any other factor but only because God created you. God values you. Not what you know or where you work or whatever you do. You are His creation. If you haven’t yet, consider becoming His child.

Our world is saturated with a blanket of negative events. When you acknowledge your potential positive influence, that you are essential to life itself, and how doing your part completes the puzzle of effective citizenship, we can see a glimpse of just how essential you are.

Every one is essential because every one is significant. Your significance goes beyond the investments deposited into your life. It goes beyond your rank, position, post assignment and your heritage. Financial status, accomplishments and achievements add zero to your significance.

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 2:12

Until next time
