An Essential Piece of Jewelry

Dec 29

by Victoria Robinson

Girlfriends, jewelry is essential to our wardrobes. We love to ornament our outfits with just the right piece. When I was a small child my aunt Maude gave me a beautiful diamond ring. What a fabulous present! Although, as you can imagine, I can only wear it on my pinky finger now. The psalmist shows us some jewelry that can actually guard our lives. This jewelry is not silver or gold, but rather made from sound judgement and discernment. This will be a beautiful ornament that will grace your neck.

To “purchase” this necklace you must go to the “jewelry store” of God’s Word. Continually reading, absorbing and practicing the words of your heavenly Father will make you beautiful and keep you safe. Dearest girlfriends, won’t you put on this spiritual necklace and walk in the confidence of the Lord.

… preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared. ~ Proverbs 3:21-26 NIV
 
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. ~ 1 Peter 3:3-4 NIV
