Reflection toward Third Sunday of Lent

PRICELESS

A priest had been invited to speak at a parish mission. The church was packed and all eyes were on him as he started his presentation. He looked around the congregation and took something out of his pocket. Everyone could see he was holding up a one-hundred-dollar bill. He asked, "Who would like to have this hundred-dollar bill?"

People looked at each other and wondered if this was some kind of trick, but hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this one hundred dollars to one of you, but first, let me do this." Holding both hands up high he crumpled the bill up into a small tight ball. He then asked, "Who still wants it?" More hands went up in the air. "Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe as hard as he could. When he picked it up, everyone could see the money was all crumpled and dirty. "Now who wants it?" Almost every hand was in the air.

"My friends, today you have all learned a very valuable lesson because, in spite of what I did to it, this bill has not lost any of its value. It is still worth one hundred dollars. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. When you don't live up to God's love for you, you may even feel as if you are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen in your life, you will never lose your value in God's eyes. Whether you are dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to God."
