The value of each human life is tremendous and cannot be seen in measurements that meet the eye! Each one of us are worth so much more than what we have, do, know, or experience. We are made in God's image, and yet at every turn society dictates to us what is popular and what we should deem as having the highest value in life.
Determining your self worth should never be measured by any one of the following lies...
Several nice cars in the garage and the biggest house have been used to falsely determine one's sense of self worth for many years. Today we can add having the latest electronic devices in our home and/or in one's pocket! If you do not carry an iphone, the latest ipad, or have the latest BluRay-3D televison & recorder, do you feel others somehow hold you in less esteem?
What one has, or does not have is not the measure of that person. The world cannot even make up its mind about this lie as the list of "must haves" rapidly keeps changing.
Teens, tweens and younger experience the feeling of low self worth if they are not considered part of the "in" crowd. Not being accepted by peers can lead to depression, dispair, or worse.
Adults get angry about such senseless comparisons, and we wonder how to put a stop to this kind of unhealthy thinking. We rightfully long to protect our children, but the reality is that adults can be just as erroneous in making value judgements according to 'who's seen with who' as well!
At a certain age, some men often feel better about themselves when they are accompanied by a young, attractive woman. Women might drop names of rich or well-known acquaintances, or be impressed by others who do this.
No age is exempt from the temptation to believe this lie.
In trying to sell us many different things, from hair shampoo that will make our hair shine like the sun (and of course make us sexier!)to the right car that will attract all manner of attentiion, the advertising media has filled us with lies concerning our appearance. While we may realize that the color or healthy look of our hair might be more attractive with a little bit of change, or that a rich car will gain us a bit more attention, and while our own sense of self esteem might somehow get tied up in this kind of marketing...when it comes to self worth, it is a lie!
Self Worth has nothing to do with the way someone looks. Looks come and go, but the worth of each human being is of such value that nothing can ever change it.
We've all heard stories of how people took their lives in the crash of the stock market in years past. Sadly enough, even today there are those who have not been able to face life knowing they have lost their wealth.
To fall for the belief that a large bank account balance, or amount of one's paycheck makes them more worthy than their neighbor who struggles to make ends meet, is to be greatly deceived.
Those who have both wealth and wisdom realize that when all is done and said, we are all equal. To believe your self worth is tied up in your net worth, is to set yourself up for a life of fear, tension, pressure and ultimately, and possibly a sense of failure should something happen to one's wealth.
The amount of money one has determining the importance of the individual is another great lie society has too often successfully placed upon us.
Here is a riddle for you: One person makes the nail. The next person places the nail in the board to build a house. The next person lives in the house with the board that is held to the frame by the nail the first person made. Who is the most important of these three individuals?
The answer is...NO ONE! Where is the logic in saying that what one person does for a living, or the talent one person has, is more important than someone else's?
While it is true that one person might make more money than the next one because of whatever it is the first person does, this takes us back to the lie that the amount of money one makes determines their self worth.
To recap: Neither what a person does, how much money they make, what they look like, who they are with, or the things they have will ever make one person's life more valuable than the next. The truth of the matter is that when all these things are stripped away, which can happen at any given moment to any one of us, we are all created equal!
