I cannot forget the excitement of receiving my engagement ring. I am not sure which sparkled brightest, the diamond, or my eyes. It was not a costly ring, but I felt like a princess. My future husband and I had made our commitment official. Long before I wore the ring, a diamond cutter looked intently into the gem, searched for flaws, and examined its many facets.
Am I committed; do I diligently look intently into the treasure of God’s word? Do my eyes light up? “But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does (James 1:25 NIV).” My flaws are sins; as darkness, they make a backdrop for the brilliance of God’s flawless word! Through adoption, I’m a child of the King!
