I once read a short story from a book about “The Greatest Jewel Box” In the story the girl wanted a real jewel box full of shiny necklaces and rings. Her mother couldn’t afford to buy her a jewel box full of jewelry. So the mother thought of a greater idea. To get her daughter a Bible. Because the Bible is more shiner, more precious, more valuable then real jewels. Its a Book full of Precious Jewels and Gems.
In the Book you will find Pearls, Diamonds, Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies and other precious jewels. The way to find them is to look for beautiful sentences beginning with P for pearls, R for rubies, E for emeralds, and D for diamonds. I can think of a Pearl. 1st John Chap. 4:18 ” Perfect love casteth out fear” I found that there is a whole string of pearls in Psalms 148 and 150. Go search for them on your own! R is for rubies ” Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy ” Exodus 20:8 D is for diamonds, ” Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” psalms 37:4. E is for emeralds, ” Every Good and perfect gift is from above. And cometh down from the Father ” James 1: 17
Here is another Ruby ” Rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him” psalms 37:7 S is for Sapphire, a message from Jesus Himself, “Surely I come quickly” Revelations 22:20 There is another Emerald in the same verse. ” Even so, come, Lord Jesus”. You see this is the worlds richest treasure chest. And it will never grow old!
WHEN HE COMETH, WHEN HE COMETH
When He cometh, when He cometh, To make up His jewels, All His jewels, precious jewels, His loved and His own, (REFRAIN) REFRAIN: Like the stars of the morning, His bright crown adorning, They shall shine in their beauty, Bright gems for His crown. Amen. He will gather, He will gather the gems for His kingdom; All the pure ones, all the bright ones, His loved and His own. (REFRAIN) Little children, little children, Who love their Redeemer, Are the jewels, precious jewels, His loved and His own. ( REFRAIN)
You see, We are His jewels and gems that shine bright in His crown! We are His Precious, Chosen, Redeemed, Loved, Cherished Children!
I hope your enjoyed this post and please look for more precious jewels in your own Bible! ❤

And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. MALACHI 3:17
