Worthy and Worth It

In the early years of my marriage major purchases such as appliances and vehicles where basic, low-end and no frills. I can now afford better quality; however, when I purchase high-end rather than mid-range I sense Judas whispering in my ear, “You should have gone for the economy model and the money you saved could have been given to the poor” (John 12:5). Recently I mentally lamented on an extravagant purchase, at least extravagant for me, when I heard a different voice say, “You’re worth it!” Believers can get into a similar mindset as we wrestle with Christ dying for us…we're sinners. Are we worth the price He paid for us? Well yes, yes we are!
