What is the value of a person?
When I searched the internet I found a site that put a monetary value of $4.50. The skin by itself was valued at $3.50. Of course, fluctuations in the stock market can change the price.
Lucky for us that as humans we don’t “normally” put a monetary value on a person.
A person can be valued just for who they are — their humor, their intellect, their kindness, their love.
Growing up, I used to believe that my father “left” us at the age of 5. He was an alcoholic and would come home and beat my mother up on the weekends.
As a grown-up, I later learned that my mother “left” my father to protect us.
My mind was confused. Had I been abandoned or saved?
Then I found out the “real” truth: we had been abandoned.
Oh — whose to say? Only the people who were actually there really know and even then it’s from their own perspectives of what they felt & saw.
My value? The life of Jesus Christ. Can anyone say they love me any better?
