How do you measure your worth?
Regardless of your position-Mom, Sister, Wife, or Employee….
Do you measure your worth by -:
- How much money do you make?
- How do others respond to you?
- How well dressed you are?
- How big your house is?
I could go on and on.
The true measure of one’s worth is found
- in the value, we add to other people’s lives
- in how they experience us
- lastly in the love that we give.
When it’s all said and done, it boils down to love and service.
- How we love others.
- We show them by serving them.
When we serve, we are adding value.
By allowing others to have a warm and loving experience when they encounter us.
When we serve others, we should do so, not because we love them, but because we love to.
Serve because you love to.
As Always, Cleave to what is good!!
I was walking home one day from school and saw 2 teenagers arguing. Apparently, they had been assigned a history project and they had both received an F.
Because it was a group project, I did not see how they had failed, having followed all the instructions. I decided to dig deeper. What I found out was that only one of them had done the project as a favor to the friend. The teacher found out.

Who was to blame for the failed grade?
Merriam Webster’s definition of responsibility:
- the quality or state of being responsible: such as:
- a: moral, legal, or mental accountability

Who is responsible for the failed grade?
The one that did not do the work or the one that did the work? Why?
