Good morning.


Often, we judge how to invest time, energy, and money based on what something is worth. In business, it’s called an ROI, or “return on investment.” If something doesn’t pay off, we get rid of it, stop doing it, or trade it in.


But how is value assigned in relationships? How do we determine what’s “worth it” and what isn’t?


There are many people who have been so rejected, so hurt, and so full of pain that they say, ‘It’s just not worth it.’ Yes it is. It’s worth it to feel anchored by a genuine, true, loving, devoted, loyal friend.


In a sense, the worth of any single relationship comes back to the conviction that relationships themselves are integral to our life. When we value being connected to others, then we are willing to pay high costs and make deep sacrifices.


Followers of Christ have found the friend spoken of in Proverbs 18:24 "there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." This fiend sticks with us through thick and thin. As a matter of fact, "while we were still sinners, He died for us."  (Romans 5:8) His name is Jesus.

No matter what we are going through, He sticks with us.


Is a relationship with Jesus Christ is worth it? Yes it is!


Have a wonderful weekend.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
