How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:7
A price value is placed on most things. Walking in a store there is a price placed on every item in the store. It tells a person how much it will cost to get it. The higher the demand for an item, the higher the price for it will be.
Price is also often determined on how rare or difficult an item is to get. Things that are nearly impossible to get will have a very high price tag on it. One of the things that the world classifies as priceless are some famous paintings or other works of art. They are a one of a kind, placing the value so high, that it is considered priceless.
David found that God’s unfailing love was priceless. There was no price that could be placed upon having His love.
Just as a person, who does not know art, does not understand the priceless value of a piece of art, the world does not understand the priceless value of God’s perfect love.
God, the one who created the universe, loves individual people. He loves the individual person so much that He sent His only Son to die on the cross for that person to give Him eternal life. Having eternal life is of such high value that it is priceless.
The only way a person can know that eternal life is by the love of God. This makes His life priceless. It is worth getting no matter what the cost. There is nothing of higher value on this earth than God’s great love.
With God’s love, one can rest assured in his salvation, that God is on His side taking care of Him and that God will do what is best for him in every situation.
Take some time to realize how much God really loves you. Think about how much God has already done for you and given you. Now realize how valuable that love is. His love is perfect and never ending and is worth pursuing at all costs.
Knowing that God loves you, show that love back to God and to others. Living your life for God is the ultimate show of love to Him. You cannot love God and others too much, when you love with His perfect, eternal love.
What has a priceless value in your life?
I pray today that you will know God’s great love for you; that you will love as God loves you; that you will know the value of God’s love; and that you will live your entire life dedicated to God.
