A Precious Gem

7 Mar

She is more precious than rubies…” Proverbs 3:15

That word precious is a wonderful word! When do you use this word– to describe a tender moment, a new baby, a loving gesture from someone?

The definition from an online dictionary states “of an object, substance, or resource it is great value; not to be wasted or treated carelessly.”

Wow! That suggests elevation and meaning. Someone or something that is precious deserves special consideration and a reserved place in our memory and in our hearts.

Did you know that YOU are precious? To God you are indeed precious. You were fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) I hope you believe you are precious and something not to be wasted or treated carelessly.

You are a jewel–unique and hand crafted. Your fingerprints are yours and yours alone. Your DNA is yours and your personal qualities and gifts were carefully designed just for you to use in this world.

God knew what the world needed when you were created. Even your flaws and failings fit you to a T.

Try to remember that YOU are more precious than rubies even if on some days only God can see this shining truth.

Be reminded of your God -given gifts and be blessed!
