Nui. Significativo. Insignis. Semnificativ. signifikant. Significant. In the same way, important, noteworthy, meaningful, substantial. These different languages may have a slight difference in meaning, but they all go back to one concrete word. For example, the word mentioned previously,” Nui” is a Hawaiian word and its meaning is “big great, grand, important.” According to, the Webster Dictionary significant means, “Large enough to be noticed or have an effect.” In my own definition, I consider it to be “of worth and have great impact.” There holds much power to this simple word; it can change something or someone with its use. We can see significance in events, in one another, and through Christ. All in all, the worth that is placed in all …show more content…
Whether they have done good or bad; physically impaired or mental, they all have great value. My little brother Roman is 8 years old now and I truly worry for him. He has down syndrome, so he is already far behind from where he should be. I hope that as he grows up that he sees value in himself, that he has a great amount of significance to our family. Most people would define him by his disability, but if people could see what my family got to see, they wouldn’t dare put a label on him. Despite his extra chromosome, he is normal, but most importantly, he is special. With today’s culture, we see less significance in ourselves and more in the people who “matter the most.” Our youth is idolizing others when in reality, they need to take a step back and evaluate themselves. Every single person on this earth will forever have significance tied to their name. No one is made the same, therefore they are all special. Everyone was made differently on purpose; we were not made to be the exact same. People have struggles and let that define them but every person, the anxious, the bitter, the brokenhearted, the abandoned, the insecure, they all have worth.

In the parable of the lost sheep, the shepherd loses one sheep out of his flock of 100. Jesus shares with the disciple’s about how even the one sheep mattered like the rest. This basically translates to the idea that everyone has value, everyone within Christ, is a part of His family. God sees us as worthy; he sees significance in us. Another great passage from The Bible is in 1 Corinthians, when Paul talks about how we make up the body of Christ. “If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact, God has placed them just as he wanted them to be.” God desires for us to realize how valuable we are and how through him we can find our significance. I truly believe that this is the most important way of depicting what significance is, which is through Christ himself. Since we are His creation, he sees ultimate worth and significance in us because he made us entirely different. Though we are not worthy compared to God, there is grace for us which exemplifies our significance because of Him. God does not need us, he has a great amount of power and authority, yet he still desires for us to be a part of his family. The significance our Father sees in us is an incredible amount of worth that no one could ever measure up to. There is no greater love than the love of Christ, therefore he sees us as worthy.
