I’ve just got back from a day at the York antique fair.
It’s funny that stuff that used to be ordinary daily use objects have now become valuable commodities. Whether they are old biscuit tins, tools, plates and saucers or matchboxes, people are falling over themselves to buy them for much more than they were ever worth in the first place. Things that once seemed like rubbish are now highly sought after.
It makes me realise that nobody is rubbish in God’s sight. In fact we are so valuable that he gave up the life of his son, Jesus, to buy us back. That’s the message of Easter.
