Five Minute Friday: Worth

It’s Friday!  Linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday crew.

Today’s prompt: worth


What is a human life worth?

What is it’s value?

In the Sherlock TV series, Mary Watson steps in front of a bullet meant for Sherlock.  It’s a powerful image of redemption.

Even more so when Sherlock realizes it.

“In saving my life she conferred a value on it. It is a currency I do not know how to spend.”

It’s easy to say a life is priceless.  It’s even easy to believe it at some level.

But the sacrifice of another’s life emphasizes the value, the worth.

Going to funerals often makes me reflective about spending my one and only life well.

Investing in eternity is always a good choice.

    You posted right before me. The value of a life, we know so well. Our third grandson is ours by choice. He is half-brother to our granddaughter. Her mother is not related to us at all. But because her son is our granddaughter’s little brother, we have adopted him into our family. After all, he needed a Poppa and NeNe! His biological father has never seen him and has no intention of being in his life. He is married and has another family. The grandparents respect his wishes, so therefore they are not in his life either. So we have the joyful privilege of being in his life. and what a joy it is! Investing in his life is investing in eternity!
    Living in HIS Joy!
