Spoiled. Two nights ago I opened a perfectly looking avocado to eat with my dinner. Although it had all the physical qualities of one that was ready when I opened it it was completely black. I was so annoyed because I had just purchased them from Trader Joes. I got up to get another one from the bag and I had a feeling all of them were spoiled, but when I opened the next one it was perfect.
This got me to thinking. Just because one area of my life is spoiled, it doesn't mean my entire life is. The dictionary says to spoil is “to diminish or destroy the value or quality of”. We were made with the best quality. We are valuable. So valuable that someone deemed us worthy enough, and He died on the cross for us. The problem isn't whether or not we are worthy, it is if we accept and walk as if we are. Does our vocabulary match up with that real truth?
Our mind is the root of them problem here. Just because I don't think I'm valuable that doesn't mean Im any less worthy. My weaknesses and my flaws do not define me. What defines me as a person is He who created me. The spoiled areas in my life are areas of opportunity. They are areas that I can work on. There is hope! There is an abundance of grace!!! I couldn't do anything to save myself from my mess-ups, and that is why I needed Jesus. He fills in the gaps of my spoiled areas. He makes what is broken and spoiled completely whole.
Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
Walk confidently today knowing your life is valuable. We diminish our worth the moment we ignore our value. When we destroy our value we are insulting Gods work. He defines you. He keeps you.
You are worthy!
