2 Peter 1:5-8
“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge, And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Anything that exists in its raw state is not of value. It must be processed or developed. A tree is of no value unless it is cut and turned into something useful like furniture, where it is fumigated, sometimes boiled, polished and treated with turpentine, etc. When it is finished, the cost of one furniture could be the price of the whole tree plus other trees.
What this means is that, value has been added to the tree.
Most of the time, price determines the value of something. The cost of a German or Korean car is different. What accounts for the difference is the value on each of them.
Similarly as Christians, it is not enough to be born-again or believe. We must add value to our lives.
What makes people unemployed is when they have not added value to their lives. Michael Essien, the footballer is paid a huge amount of money a week. His legs have been rated on a high scale. One may ask, “What is the difference between Michael Essien’s legs and mine? Very simple! He has added value to it!
If you want your salary to increase, you must increase your value. If you want God to use you, you must increase your value.
When you add value to your life, you will be valuable both to God and man. Your friends, wife or husband, employer, and even your in-laws will find you valuable.
Decide to add value to your life today!
