Some translations say in verse five that we are made a little lower than God. If someone tells you that another person is worthless, ask them, "worth less than what? Yes we are sinners, Paul says "there is none good, not even one." But Paul was talking about a goodness or rightness that commends us to God. No where does the Bible say we are of no value. We are the crowning act of God's creation. On the sixth day of creation, after God had created man, He said, "It is very good."
Unfortunately in our churches and families we suffer from what I call a "spiritual inferiority complex." God showed his love (his expression of our worth) that even while we were in sin, He died for us. He spread out his arms on the cross, and said, "this is how much I love you." We are to love as God loved. It does not matter what a person has done or said, or what their attitude is or what they look like, they are only worth less than God himself. Jesus told his disciples;John 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. THOT: HOW YOU LOVE OTHERS IS REALLY HOW YOU LOVE GOD
