Do You?

​Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[d] Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” – John 11:25-26 

“Do you believe?”  YES and AMEN!

Hello, dear readers. While I was reading some posts by my blogging buddies, I came across an old friend, Anand. (Hi, Anand!) at Blabberwockying. As usual, I learned something new, but was also challenged to find out why!

As you may know, the opposite of ‘correct’ is ‘incorrect’ and the opposite of ‘accurate’ is ‘inaccurate.’ But, the opposite of ‘valuable’ is NOT ‘invaluable.’ So, Anand, I had to go find out why. The prefix ‘in’ does indeed mean ‘not.’  But, in the late 1500’s, ‘value’ was a verb meaning ‘to estimate the worth of (something).’  So, invaluable therefore meant something so priceless that you could not estimate how much it was worth. Who knew?
