We, as part of God's creation, in the same way,
have intrinsic [belonging naturally, built in] worth because of how we were created,
and who we were created by.
Value is not contingent on what you do or accomplish, but on what God has done in creating you.
1 Cor 1:26-27 (NLT) 26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy[a] when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.
