The worth of a person.....
A pastor stood in front of his people one Sunday and held up a brand new $100 bill. He asked the question, "who would like to have this money"? Every hand was raised. He then took the bill and crumbled it up in his hands, and asked again, "ok, now who would like this money"? Again, every hand was raised. Everyone wanted the money. Finally, he took the bill, and placed it on the ground, and stepped all over it with his dirty shoes. He asked again, "now, who wants this money"? Still, every hand was raised. Even though the money was crushed, a little torn,, and dirty everyone still knew it had value. I wish everyone could also recognize the value in people, even if they are crushed or dirty!
