The Gold you Hold
It is amazing how someone can handle something so valuable and yet have no idea of its true worth! I pray this is not said of our lives. Everyday we handle priceless treasure. This treasure comes in all shapes and sizes; it is the newborn baby we get up in the middle of the night to feed, it is the wayward child who craves our affection yet will never ask for it, it is the elderly loved one hanging on to the last few days of life. It is the crazy office full of people giving their all for a cause, it is the neighbours who seem very distant and yet they are your assignment, it is the smile your loved one gives you as they leave the room, it is the phone call you weren’t expecting that makes everything feel better. It is the priceless gift of our everyday lives paid at the highest price by our loving Savior. It’s our every day covered by His endless grace and emerged in His matchless love. So today don’t overlook the value in the vessels you meet, don’t for a moment consider yourself poor when He has made you rich. See the gold that you already hold and value it today.
