Jewelry has always been one of my favorite things to buy. I remember with my first paycheck from Dairy Haven, buying new earrings.
I was headed to the store last week in hopes of finding a locket . I needed one that would hold a small picture of my three grandkids.
There were lockets of all sizes and shapes and I had a difficult time deciding on the “perfect” one.
I was reminded of a meme that said something like, “If Jesus had a refrigerator, your picture would be on a magnet right in the front.” Just as I wanted to display the picture of dearly loved grands, Jesus has us at the front and center of His heart. He loves us so much, in fact, that He left His Father in heaven, gave up all the splendor and glory beyond our imaginations, and came to earth as an infant. He died a gruesome death on a cross. Yet, He didn’t stay there. He arose and has gone to prepare a place for us that we may join Him in heaven one day.
Do you have a locket with a picture of a loved one tucked neatly inside? Is Jesus on the throne of your heart? Are His teachings often coming to mind when going through a rough day?
Proverbs 6:20,21 “My son, keep your father’s command, and don’t reject your mother’s teaching. Always bind them to your heart; tie them around your neck.”
If you had a locket to remind you of Jesus, what would be the inscription?

Read I Samuel 5:1-10 (very interesting read)
When the Philistines captured the Ark of God, they never realized the impact it would have on their people. A nation of false gods taking on the power of the One True God would shake things up a bit.
The first morning, they found their god, Dagon, laying on his face. Returning him to his “rightful” place, they set him erect once again.
However, the second morning as they entered to worship, they found Dagon headless and handless. Fear swept over the people and they wanted rid of the Ark of Israel. The Philistine rulers decided it was necessary to move the Ark to the city of Gath.
Guess what happened in Gath! Verse 9 tells us the men of the city, from the youngest to the oldest, had an “outbreak of tumors”. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I want to defy the One True God.
Today a reader，tomorrow a leader！
