There are moments in time when people, places and things have been overlooked because they are simple; it seems that they are of no value, their worth is not essential. No one give an audience or pays any attention, but their values lie within. Some things in life aren’t meant to glow or shine but they have the value of a diamond. Just like the pearl of great price, they are waiting to be discovered. However, these things or people are more important than we think, and they glow in the dark when no one is taking note. They are content to be on the side line waiting to be discovered. No matter how much we try we cannot exist without these insignificant things.
What are we talking about? Our bodies are made of many parts, we appreciate those areas that are seen but the ones that are not seen we ignore. Can you imagine the significance of the insignificant? The Bible speaks of the comely parts and the uncomely parts. However, they are just as important as the areas we magnify! Think about it the next time you want to discriminate. We are a part of the whole and are as important as the rest.
Look at the meaning of this word. (Insignificant) Too small or unimportant to be worth consideration. Unimportant, trivial, trifling or negligible. If these seems to be things that you have encounter, then you might be surprised to know that you are not alone. Everyday and in some way what is important is being ignored for what we think is of more significance. How tragic! This is what we encounter daily. The pearl of great price was buried until someone sought it and brought it to the forefront; now the thing that was unseen and without value is the most valuable.
On our jobs or places of business we are overlooked as not worth the while listening to then the moment come when only you have the answer to their dilemmas. You now become a reference when the perpetrators hit the wall of blockades not being able to think outside the box and having no place to go or no ideas of their own. What is it that causes us to act in this way? I wish I had all the answers, but I don’t. The significance of the insignificant.
The concept of the insignificant to me is an understatement of pride. That is what I think! When you think that the other person or things are unimportant because of what or who they are, that is pride. Even the body is a lesson of what it is to think this way. Our body is wonderfully made but there are parts that we would think is more important than the other. However, they are just as important. Stop look at yourself and then make a comparison of the different parts and you will see the significance of every part.
We like to use the words, insignificant other. I think it might be insulting to even consider knowing the true meaning of the words. When you are referred to someone as insignificant other, you are saying that they are not important, has no value or does not really matter. You only keep them around in the background for when all else fails. Whatever is important for you to get through the moment; when everything is going well push them back into the background again.
It does not matter who you are; where you came from or where you were born in Gods eye you are a pearl of great price that is worth fighting for. We the people are a significant breed with great value!
