"You are worth more"

What is our value? From where does it come? Who decides for us our value or worth? Shall it be the world? Or God?

"Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others
I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others,
I will deny before my heavenly Father.”

If we would accept our true value then we must accept the Fatherhood of God and testify to Him before the world. If we would know and rejoice in our infinite worth, "more than many sparrows" we must be known by our lives as true children of the Father in heaven whose love in Christ as the gift of the Spirit is the source of our value and worth.

Meeting Christ in the Liturgy offers a reflection for The Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary Time.
