Have you noticed that businesses are advertising that they are buying gold? I checked today, and gold is selling for $1700 an ounce. When there is a limited quantity and so many dollars chasing after it, the price skyrockets. That's why we call gold, a precious metal.
Therefore, when there is only one of a kind in this world, then
logically, it would be very expensive and quite precious.
Have you ever given a thought on how Jesus looks at you? In a positive way or a negative way?
I would like you to consider this: How many of ‘you’ are out there in the world? Only one, isn't there? You can't be duplicated or compared, because you are one of a kind. Would you then consider yourself, valuable to someone, important to someone, or even precious to someone?
By design, you are precious because Our Lord created you to be one of a kind, irreplaceable. In our world, we place expensive alarm systems and safes in our homes or businesses to protect what is valuable. This
is the reason Our Lord assigns guardian angels and saints to protect his precious sons and daughters. When considering how precious you are to Jesus, do you think He cares whether you get hurt physically,
emotionally, or spiritually? (You betcha)
This is the central message of Divine Mercy as Jesus revealed to St. Faustina. Why would Heavenly Father allow His only Son to offer himself as a sacrifice for us? He did so because we are precious to Him, and He would pay a very high price for each one of us.
