00696 - Worth Knowing

In a world that prioritises recognition, the actual value of an individual can be found in qualities like compassion, kindness, and encouragement. These make someone worth knowing, not the breadth of their fame but the depth of their character. Matthew 5:16 illustrates this beautifully: "In the same way, let your light shine before people, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

This passage encourages us to live so that our actions lead others to glorify God. It's about the influence that stems from genuine acts of kindness and moral integrity rather than from the superficial allure of celebrity.

Being worth knowing means you enrich the lives of those around you, providing solace, inspiration, and uplift in a world that sorely needs it. Cultivating such traits ensures that your value to others transcends mere acquaintance, becoming a lasting and cherished presence in their lives.


Let the value of who you are be the thing that impresses people.


Father, thank You that I can walk in the example of integrity that You are. Amen.
