    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus teaches three ways NOT to go after self-worth, and then concludes with the only truly lasting and meaningful way to find one's worth. Not only that, but he models that true way for us.

    Matthew 23:1-12 The Source of Self-worth Do you ever wonder why some people are such jerks? Sometimes people can be so cruel to others! And yet, behind the facade of the bully lies a deep insecurity, a fear of rejection. Our bookstores are full of books about self-worth. I did a quick more

    Contributed by John Lowe on Dec 27, 2017

    Peter had called Jesus’ attention to the sacrifice he and the other disciples had made. “Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.” Now, Jesus rivets the attention of the group on the infinitely greater sacrifice He is about to make.
