From A Restored Warriors Brother:
These two pennies do not look the same. The one on the left is dirty and faded. The one the right is shiny and you can see President Lincoln clearly. I feel like the penny on the left sometimes. My sins have caused me to look faded and dirty. But we need to remember that our value is still the same because of salvation. Our value in God’s eyes see a penny. Does not matter if we are a shiny penny or a faded one. God sees the same value.
