The Value of One

Read Luke 14:1 through 16:31

Little Benjamin was visiting the nursing home with his father and was helping one of the residents put together a one-thousand-piece puzzle. They worked diligently for hours until they realized one piece was missing. Everyone in the place searched for the missing piece. With a loud cry someone exclaimed, “I found it!” Everyone rejoiced.

“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent” (Luke 15:7).

Scripture says heaven rejoices when a soul comes to Christ. Heaven knows the true value of a soul is priceless. When was the last time you saw the priceless value of a lost family member, friend, neighbor, coworker, or even a stranger? God knows the value of one, and He saw the value in you. Will you be like Him and see value in others?
