Treasure: a person whom the speaker loves or who is highly valued; to value highly
Isn’t it amazing that God loves us?
I mean, think about it. Think about how often you forget about God, neglect God, do the wrong things, run away — and despite all of that, God still loves us.
Jeremiah 31:3 says that God loves us with an everlasting love.
1 John 3:1 says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God.”
He SO loved us that He gave His son to die for us.
THAT is true love.
But not only does our great Father love us, He treasure’s us.
We are the apple of His eye, His beloved, His chosen people. We are more precious than rubies.
We are His treasure.
So walk confidently into this week knowing you are loved; you are highly valued; and you are a treasure more precious than gems.
Don’t let anything take that knowledge from you.
You are loved.
