An original....

We're on a series right now with the youth, talking about identity.

With teenagers, how relavent is that?  Afterall, in school, its all about those 'labels'

Are they the jock, the artist, the nerd, the cheerleader, the loner?
...everyone gets labeled...

Ryan taught the kids the other day & brought up a wonderful example...

He showed them the picture of the Mona Lisa

First - I have to say that I was surprised they even knew what it was & second, some actually knew who painted it... impressed, I am...

But he reminded them that they could get copies of that print anywhere, for a cheap price... post cards, posters...& all probably under $20

But how much is that original?  An amount of money that none of us in that room had... even put together...

Why is it so pricey?

Because of who painted it...

the craftmanship in it... the talent... the work... all put into one painting
... the original...

Now look in the mirror....
.... & remember that God created you
.... put craftmanship, talent & work in creating you
.... you're an original....

Now, how much do you think you're worth?

you're priceless

... no matter what your label is


  1. This was super inspiring! Teenagers especially need to hear this and even young adults like me need to know this from time to time.. Steven Curtis Chapman's Fingerprints of God came to mind when I was reading this.

  2. I would definitely say that's one lesson every teenager needs to hear! THANK YOU!

  3. I love this. Exactly what I needed to read today.


I am thankful for each comment & like to respond to every one of them....
