sunday thoughts: the worth of a soul

[just pretend that it's still Sunday]

Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God. 
D&C 18:10

This Sunday I decided to share some thoughts that seems to be recurring a lot in church and on my mind lately. I have written this post many times, unhappy with the way it has turned out,  so I truly hope that it touches you in the way it is meant to.

My thoughts have been on the worth of a soul.  Your soul, my soul & what we mean to God.  In today's society I believe it is so easy for us to forget that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father who wants nothing  more than us to be happy.  It is so easy for us to get down own ourselves and to not feel worthy for His love or for the love of others.  As we become unhappy & feel unimportant, we easily become caught up in trying to please the world, becoming what the world think is the 'perfect' women or man.  We begin to let the world into our hearts, changing the way we personally view ourselves.  Elder Uchtdorf reminded us that "The Lord uses a scale very different from the world's to weigh the worth of a soul".

Nothing breaks my heart more than to see someone struggle with their self worth. Throughout the scriptures there are countless times where the Lord express his love and value of each and everyone of us. President Thomas S. Monson said "The worth of a human soul is its capacity to become as God".  There is infinite worth in a human soul, we must not forget that! As important as it is for us to realize our great worth, it is equally as important for us to find the worth of others.  We must learn to seek the good in other & help them to see their worth.  Don't just talk about love, love.

We must remember we are all sons and daughters of God and he loves each one of us and we must see each other like that too.   Love those around you, look for ways to serve & remember you are loved.
