Point to Ponder

Got this from a friend (thanks Hooper). Just thought I would share it with you. I am on my last week on night shifts, hopefully will get to blog more after this week.

It frequently happens that the value of a thing lies in
the fact that someone has possessed it. A very ordinary thing
acquires a new value, if it has been possessed by some famous
person. In any museum we will find quite ordinary
things—clothes, a walking-stick, a pen, pieces of
furniture—which are only of value because they were possessed
and used by some great person. It is the ownership which gives
them worth. It is so with the Christian. The Christian may be
a very ordinary person, but he acquires a new value and
dignity and greatness because he belongs to God. The greatness
of the Christian lies in the fact that he is God’s.

"You are not your own. You have been bought with a price." 1 Cor 6:19-20
"For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you..." 1 Thes. 1:4
