Proverbs of a 37 yr old man

Don't fall into the trap of "book value". The worth of a thing is what someone will pay for it. The priest in Israel set the rules and valuations the people of God. Now if a man consecrates his house as holy to the LORD, then the priest shall value it either as good or bad. The price will stand just as the priest values it. Also donkeys are unfit for sacrifice, so if you promise me a donkey, you must bring it to the priest, and let him determine its value. Jesus is our high priest and He determine the value of every lost soul on earth. He gave his life so that his blood would cover any book value sin may bring. Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Don't fall into the trap of book value, you are worth more than many sparrows because of the precious blood of Christ. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

Study Heb. 4:14
