One woman's mistake about an Apple I's worth taught me how much God loves and values me. Do you ever misjudge your own worth or the worth of something based on externals? "In June 2015, a woman found a forgotten, old computer belonging to her deceased husband in their garage. The computer was bulky and heavy compared to today’s sleek models. She donated the clunky, outdated computer to an electronics-recycling center in Northern California. She didn’t know its true worth. But someone at the recycling center did.
