Value is so subjective. Peoples’ opinions differ on just about everything. Imagine if we used subjective measures to draw conclusions about who we are as Christians? Sad to say, we’d be lost. I am SO grateful that God’s words about me are true, solid, and objective. They define me, nothing else. Take a look at the following list. This is what God says about me….and you.
