Sometimes we just need to be Reminded!

A well-known speaker
Started off his seminar by:

Holding up a $20.00
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 proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.

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.

My friends, we 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 feel as though we are

But no matter what has
Happened or

What will happen, you
Will never lose your value.

Dirty or
Clean, crumpled or finely creased,

You are still
priceless to those who DO LOVE you.

The worth of our
lives comes not in what we do or who we know,

but by WHO WE ARE and

You are
Don't EVER forget it."

If God brings you to
it -
He will bring you
through it.
