What are You Worth?

(I borrowed this and don’t know the source, it’s pretty good info though)

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked:

”Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up.

He said: “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.”

He wadded the dollar bill up.

He then asked: “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.

“Now who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air.

He went on to say, “My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We often feel as though we are worthless.

But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. To those who love you, you are priceless.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by who we are…and that just doesn’t change.”
