SCRIPTURE: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where there is no price, there is no worth.
It has been confirmed that for every rise there is a price. No one rises by a sudden flight. To reach the prize, you must press for it. Those who rise to the top don’t do so by chance but by fight. There is nothing of value that is cheap. Every time you see anything that is without cost, it is also without value.
For instance, when a man carries a lady into his house without a proper meeting with her parents in order to pay her dowry, it confirms that the value her life holds in his eyes is zero. I used the word ‘carries’, not ‘marries’ because there is a difference between marriage and carriage. And since the woman has no value in the eyes of the man, he can slap her and beat the hell out of her. He would not care for her mother or father. Why? He got the woman very cheaply. But if he pursued the lady, and she gave him a little tough time before saying ‘yes’ to him; if he paid some price on her head, engaged her parents, endured all the procedures of marriage and answered all the questions parents would ask their potential son-in-law, then he would value her.
Where there is no price, there is no worth.
Beloved, if you want to leave the ground level in life and reach high up, there is a cost, a price to pay. Do all you can to pay the price and you will get there!
Remember this: Where there is no price, there is no worth.
1. List out what you want out of life, and list the price required.
2. Ask God for the grace to pay the price; then pay it.
3. Refuse to allow your flesh, or people to bend your principles.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to pay the required price for impact in my generation. Help me Lord to bring glory to Your Name as You shift me to the realm of authority and influence, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
