Our Worth Does Not Fluctuate

While reading a Neal A. Maxwell’s amazing conference talk “Consecrate Thy Performance” (April 2002), I learned that we shouldn’t let our worries of the day influence how we feel about our overall worth.

Some have difficulty when particular tasks enter their sunset phase. John the Baptist is a model, however, saying of Jesus’ growing flock, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). Mistakenly regarding our present assignments as the only indicator of how much God loves us only adds to our reluctance to let go. Brothers and sisters, our individual worth is already divinely established as “great”; it does not fluctuate like the stock market.

Our divine worth is great, and does not change.
