God’s Priceless Treasure
Have you ever made, painted, designed or invented something that has given you great joy and a feeling of accomplishment.
Painting, writing, pottery or craft can be very rewarding because although we start with raw materials, we can create something really beautiful even a Masterpiece.
What a sense of accomplishment what joy, it even feels part of us maybe because we have given of ourselves to achieve it.
So we forget about all our mistakes this one object is valuable,
a priceless treasure a thing of beauty.
What happens when someone comes along and calls our treasure worthless and ugly throws dirt all over it even trying to destroy it,
“How do we feel?” the heartache would be too great to describe the anger and pain too real.
Then someone else comes along who understands what we have achieved, who can see the beauty in what we have created,
They can see behind the dirt and blemishes and appreciate its true value they even want to restore it back to its original beauty regardless of the cost.
Our joy would be great we would be so thankful and our treasure would be given a place of honour and be protected.
We are God’s Priceless Treasure He created us and He doesn’t make mistakes, our value to Him is beyond measure.
Think of His pain when He sees us hurt, broken, damaged, needing to be restored.
Jesus understood His Father’s pain, He came to restore us back to our original beauty, the cost was great but His Love was greater.
We can never understand the Father’s pain or can we ever repay what He suffered so we could be restored,
But we thank Him, we thank Him with our whole lives because He gives us His greatest Treasure.
