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?
