Worthless or unworthy

There is an important saying:

“As sinners we are unworthy, but not worthless”

Because of our sins and sinful nature we can not earn a place in
heaven in the presence of God in whatsoever way.. But in God's
eyes we were not worthless otherwise He would not have
given his Son for us to make us worthy to become even his sons!

A man who sold blocks of marble had put aside a block that he
esteemed unworthy to have it in stock for selling. When Michel Angelo
visited the man he saw the unworthy block of marble and asked what
the price was. The salesman gave it to Michael Angelo and whould
not have any monery for it. The sculptor and painter took it with him
and in his workshop he made a magnificient statue of it. In the eyes
of Michael Angelo that block of marble was not worthless for he saw
what he could make of it
