A Woman's Price Tag

By Bonita Lillie

"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies."

( Proverbs 31:10 )

Devotion:

I looked like a peacock strutting in full splendor, displaying regal
feathers. I was wearing my "coat of many colors," a plaid sateen jacket, a
gift from my sanguine mother who loves color and flair. It felt awkward
wearing my mother's personality. I err to the conservative side, preferring
that all eyes not be on me. Uneasily, I slid into one of the front rows of
the church, hoping the shine of the jacket wouldn't distract people from the
sermon.

I became engrossed in the service and it wasn't until after church was over
that the jacket came to mind again. My neck was itching and as I reached
back to scratch it I was horrified to discover that the price tag to my new
jacket was hanging down my back. Worse yet, I wasn't just on sale, I was on
clearance!

I guess my fellow worshippers were too embarrassed to tell me.

Unfortunately, many of us are like that jacket. We look good, but we have an
imaginary price tag hanging not on our clothes, but on our person. We see
ourselves

as cheap, not worth much, possibly even on God's clearance rack. We don't
believe anyone could ever love us and certainly, God could never use us in
His plan, but nothing could be further from the truth.

It's interesting that in Proverbs 31 before God ever addresses the godly
woman's "to do" list, he establishes her worth. Before she ever says or does
anything, he deems her worthy, apart from all works and He does it in such a
way that we can never forget it. He doesn't just label her adequate, but He
raves about her, ranking her superior to the rarest, most exquisite stones.
God's woman is worth more than costly gems. That woman is you!

Your worth isn't wrapped up in your accomplishments, possessions, job title,

popularity, or looks. It isn't about what others think of you, good or bad.

It doesn't even matter what you think of yourself. We can be our harshest
critic, can't we? Your worth has nothing to do with any of those things or
even your ability to carry out the duties listed in Proverbs 31. You are
precious to God simply because you are His child.

The truth is that one day you did have a price tag hanging on you. I
Corinthians 6:20 says, "you were bought with a price." Yet, you weren't
cheap. In fact, it cost God everything to purchase you for Himself. You are
one valuable lady, a woman deeply loved and valued by God. You mean the
world and all to Him!

Father, when I'm tempted to look down on myself or feel unworthy, help me to
hold my head high, knowing that my value doesn't come from my own feelings,
but from You. You say I'm valuable and that is enough. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Do You Know Him?

Application Steps:

Make eye contact with yourself in a mirror and repeat after me: I have
value. I have worth. No matter how I feel, God's word is true. He loves me.
He values me. I am important.

Reflections:

Do you have a favorite piece of jewelry or maybe a certain type of stone
that sets your heart a pitter-patter? Take a few moments to think about the
beautiful facets of those gems. Ask God to bring this picture to mind when
you start to thinking negative thoughts about yourself.

Power Verses:

(Proverbs 31:30), "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman
who fears the Lord is to be praised."

(I Peter 3:3-4), "Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such
as braided hear and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead,
it should

be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gently and quiet
spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight."

(Jeremiah 29:11), "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a
future."
