1 Corinthians 6

What Are You Worth?

You were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20

Some years ago, Harold J. Morowitz, a leading chemist, received a birthday card from his daughter. The card read, “According to biochemists, the materials of your body are worth only 98 cents!” Morowitz thought, “Is that really what I’m worth?” He got out his chemical catalogue and began looking up the prices of all the body’s chemicals. What he found was surprising. At the time, haemoglobin was selling for $285 a gram. Insulin was marketed for $47.50 a gram. The price went climbing with less common items like alkaline phosphatase at $225 a gram.
