The value of something is often determined by the price it will bring. For instance, you can look up the value of a vehicle in a price-guide book. From that you can get a general idea of what your vehicle may be worth. However, you may not actually be able to get that much money when you sell your car. The actual value of the car is what the market will actually pay you for the car. The price paid often determines the value.
The value of a house may be determined by many factors. One important factor is the price that other houses in the neighborhood are receiving when sold. The price received for those other houses will affect the price you can expect to receive for your house.
Dear Christian, do you know how valuable you are? I am not sure Christians always recognize their own worth. The value of something is often determined by the price it will bring. What price did you bring? “You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold... .but with the precious blood of Christ... (1 Peter 1:18, 19).” A value cannot be placed upon your soul. You are invaluable. You are priceless!
