There’s a difference between “price” and “value.” When we choose to spend our hard-earned money to buy something, we are willing to pay that price because it has value to us. We value the product we are purchasing more than we do the hours of work it took to accumulate the necessary money. We actually value it more than the price asks.
Similarly, the same shirt, sold at the same price, can have vastly different value to those who buy it. A $20 t-shirt may become someone’s favorite shirt, and they prize it more than any other shirt in their closet. But the same shirt may end up in someone else’s yard sale just a few weeks later.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
In your life, what do you treasure? What are the things so valuable to you that you couldn’t put a price on it? What are the things so valuable to you, that you would be willing to make deep and meaningful sacrifices to guard and keep?
Our best life is the one where we are able to separate treasure form trash before we pay the price. This Sunday at Liberty Hill we continue our series, “Don’t Waste Your Life” by talking about aiming at what is most satisfying and fulfilling in life. In other words, what is the true treasure we need to aim our lives toward? Join us at 10:30 AM and experience it with us!
