Have you ever walked past a penny on the ground? Me too, then I heard a man say “Pennie’s make dollars”! From that day on I don’t pass by any money on the ground without picking it up. You are probably wondering where I am going with this?
If you take a penny, toss it on the ground, it’s still a penny. If it becomes green with oxidation, it’s still a penny. If it has paper glued to one side , it’s still a penny. If it’s shiny and brand new, well it’s a new penny but still worth its original value. Some people treat Pennie’s as what’s left over, they often set them aside and many leave them behind for someone else to use as needed, these actions do not reduce the value of that penny.
I would bet there are days when you feel like a penny, overlooked, left behind, stepped over, stepped on and undervalued, but I am here to tell you that You were created in purpose, just like that penny. The US Mint created Pennie’s because there was a need in the monetary system for them. People use Pennie’s because they are a factor in our society that has a monetary value. Just like that penny, you were created because there was need for you on the earth.
No two Pennie’s are the same and no two people are the same but the value is unchanged.
Never let anyone make you feel as if you do not matter, GOD created you in his likeness and in his image so you are valuable and worth more than gold. It does not matter what people do or say, it matters how you view yourself.
Let me remind you of this:
“You formed the way I think and feel. You put me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because you made me in such a wonderful way. I know how amazing that was!”
Psalms 139:13-14 ERV
“My darling, you are beautiful all over. Every part of you is perfect.”
Song of Songs 4:7 ERV
“God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us new people so that we would spend our lives doing the good things he had already planned for us to do.”
Ephesians 2:10 ERV
