I have a here a $20 bill -- how much is it worth? (WHO WANTS IT?)

What if I tear it?

What if I crumple it up?

What if I throw it on the floor and stomp on it?


Because it's still a $20 bill.

It has intrinsic value that makes it worth $20.

But WHY is it worth $20?

Is the paper?

Is the ink?

Are the pictures on it worth $20?


It's worth $20 because somebody made it who had the authority to say it had that value.

You have been made in the image of God.

He has the authority to say you have value and worth.

No matter what's happened to you

No matter what you've done with your life

No matter how many bad decisions you've made

You are STILL created in the image of God.
