The $20.00 Bill

A well-known speaker started off his message by holding up a $20 bill. In  the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up.
 
He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you, but first let me do this. He proceeded to crumple the $20 dollar bill up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
 
Still the hands were up in the air.
 
Well, he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and  started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
 
 “Now, who still wants it?”
 
Still the hands went into the air.
 
“My friends, we have all learned a very  valuable lesson.
 
No matter what was done to the money, you still wanted it
  because it did not decrease in value.
“It was still worth $20”
 
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt  by the decisions we make and the circumstances
that come our way.
 
 We feel as though we are worthless…
 
 “But no matter what has happened or what will happen
we will never lose our value.
 
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, we are still priceless
 to those who Love us.
 
 The worth of our lives comes not in what we do to achieve success, or who we know, or by our worldly possessions but by
who we are, and we are…
 
 God’s Priceless Treasure in Christ Jesus.
 
We Always remember “That we were created special and unique”
 
We may never know the lives we touch, the hurting hearts we speak to, or the hope that we bring, as we encourage and uplift others with the wonderful news that they are a person of worth to their Creator and that He longs to be their friend but
each seed planted will bring forth fruit both in others and in ourselves.
 
 Let’s Count our blessings, not our problems.
 
We never need to be afraid to try something new or even to start again and if we do shed a tear or two we remember tears are a gift
to help us heal but when the Joy in our heart overflows we share it freely and with Love.

    Hi Anne
    your post reminds me with God’s word in Ephesians 2 :8-10
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    Jesus paid a vrey high price to save us from certain death to eternal life .. for those whom will accept him and repent

    Colossians 2:14
    Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    God Bless you

      Hi Dunia wonderful words of reassurance and yes indeed the whole world was offered Salvation in Christ Jesus and we accept it by heart repentance which means turning from evil and doing good and as we choose to do so we are empowered to do so by The Holy Spirit and although we can’t earn Salvation we will show we have it as we walk in Christ Jesus.

      Thank you for sharing my friend – Christian Love Anne.

    Isn`t it amazing how much we are worth to our loving God ? Dirty crumpled beaten by life written off by society, He picks us up like that crumpled note, holds us as if He has a great prize. What a mighty God we serve.
