What Gives You Worth?

May 1, 2022    Rev. Barry Kidwell

When this movie first launched Disney made more dolls of Isabella than Lousia but they quickly found that they could not keep Louisa dolls on the shelf. Young children were scooping them up but so were adults. The burden to care for everyone else that she felt was/is far too relatable for many of us. When there was a threat that her power might go away she felt as though her worth and value was going to go away as well. How many of us have struggled with that same feeling- thinking that our inherent value is dependent on what we produce or accomplish? “Who I am is more important than what I do.” What does it look like for us to get our strength, value, and identity from who we are in/through Jesus rather than the things of this world?
