You Are Priceless

You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
                               —Psalm 139:13

In 2015, a woman left three boxes of electronics at a recycling facility in Milpitas, California. They contained things that had belonged to her deceased husband. Declining a receipt, saying the items were worthless, she drove away, leaving no name.

Among those “worthless” items was a first-generation Apple 1 desktop computer—one of only 200 personally built by Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. It was sold to a private collector for $200,000.

The worth of something often comes down to two things: quantity and creator.

Your value is measured by quantity—there is only one of you. And by creator—God made you.

“You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13). “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart” (Jer 1:5).

God made only one of you.
You are priceless.
