“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious.” I Peter 2:4 While we pile up many things that are important to us, very little of it is really precious. In fact, the most precious things in life are not material things at all. Rather, it’s the people who have loved us and built into our lives. When Peter refers to Jesus as “a chief cornerstone, elect, precious,” it should resonate in our hearts that He is truly precious – our prized possession above everything and everyone else. Where would we be today without the constant unfailing companionship of His faithful presence, wise and perfect guidance, and merciful patience, comfort, and transforming reproof? What would we do without Him? Of all that is precious, Jesus tops the list.
