Welcome to Day 1821 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Value and Worth – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1821 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, "How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!" If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:
Today’s quote is from Todd Hahn, and it is, "A person’s value and worth has nothing to do with his or her morality."
Value and Worth
As a Christ-follower, you may think that I should never include a quote like this on Wisdom-Trek because living a moral life should be required as a Christian. It is a benchmark of our relationship with a Holy God.
Although morality is a manifestation of our relationship with God, it is certainly not the basis of that relationship. Our relationship with God is based solely on the finished work of Jesus Christ. While we are encouraged in God’s Word to live a Biblically moral life, our value and worth in God’s sight are viewed through His Son and not by any righteous works we may do or have done.
Understand and know that the purpose for living a virtuous and moral life is to honor a holy God who views us so worthy and valuable that He was willing to sacrifice His own son so we may have a relationship with Him. Live a life worthy of that calling.
Romans 1:16-17For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
