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.
