Your Value as a Human Being

Your Value as a Human Being

Genesis 2:7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

The Body

We indeed are made of the common earth elements (the dust of the Earth):

65% Oxygen
18% Carbon
10% Hydrogen
3% Nitrogen
1.5% Calcium
1% Phosphorous
0.35% Potassium
0.25% Sulfur
0.15% Sodium
0.15% Chlorine
0.05% Magnesium
0.0004% Iron
0.00004% Iodine

Total worth about $4.50

The Mind

Yet on closer examination just looking at the human brain which contains 100 billion neurons, each with about 10,000 synapses.  It has been estimated that the brain of a three-year-old child has about 1 quadrillion synapses.  

In fact if you considered all complexity within multiple, interconnected systems that are within your makeup, you are beyond imagination.

God turned common dust into the most complex system on earth.  

The Spirit

The spirit/conscience/soul within you which came from the very essence of God as mentioned in Genesis 2:7 is then of eternal value.  

The Bottom Line


If you are concerned about your self-worth, you shouldn’t be.  You are worth more than you can possibly imagine.  God may have started you from the dust of the Earth, but he form you into something that has incredible, and eternal value.
