We at Kraybill are instilling the deeper understanding that what we do, our accomplishments and our failures do not determine our usefulness. Rather it is God's investment in them that gives them an identity and value.
Jesus first tells us, who we are ... then what to do.
"You are the salt of the earth, you are the light of the world."
and then he tells us what to do
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
Our worth is not determined by what we do, but by who invests in us. The cost of God's investment in us runs deep.
