I tuck things into my jewelry box that I don’t want to lose. Things I call ‘tiny treasures’. You’ll find snippets of baby hair and a few baby teeth from each of my children (yeah, okay that could be gross but it used to be the thing to do), and even a tiny slip of paper that has genealogy written down so whoever opens it after I’m gone will know where a certain piece of jewelry in our family came from. These things aren’t worth money but they are special to me.
In God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box: Becoming Jewels God Can Use, Michelle Cox uses treasures found in our jewelry box to show us in an ‘everyday kind of way’ where to find real treasure. Since reading through this devotional, whenever I reach for something in my jewelry box I’m reminded that my greatest treasure isn’t contained inside the little drawers and red velvet folds but it is in Heaven.
Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
This book is a little ‘gem’ in itself. Cox has an astonishing gift for bringing to life things that seem so simple. I found it most encouraging and inspiring. Pick up a copy today and see what treasure abides within.
I appreciate the author and publisher sending me a copy of this book to review. I was not required to write a positive review, only my honest opinion of the book. No compensation has been received.
