Scripture:  I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…You are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you.  Isaiah 43: 3-4a

Meditation:  Precious (an adjective) means: something of great value.  Dear.  Rare.  Costly.  Priceless. Irreplaceable. Of incalculable value or worth.  God says to each of us:  I am your God.  You are dear to me, of great value, priceless, irreplaceable, of incalculable worth to me.  Let that sink into your soul!

Prayer:  It is absolutely incredible, Divine Parent, that you regard us as precious.  Help us to live into that reality.   Amen.
