Jewels in His Crown

When I was a little girl, I loved to sing that song about Jesus making us His jewels. 

I'm Joni Eareckson Tada, and when I was a little girl, I loved to sing that song about Jesus making us His jewels. The idea that I could be his treasure? Something he prized and valued? Well, I’ve grown up and I still love that thought: the Bible says we are jewels in the making... we are living stones. And in a way, this earth is a kind of quarry out of which we are being cut, honed and polished for his pleasure. He's making us into jewels in his crown. Look, friend, I know it's hard, but don’t focus on the hammer and chisel in your life. Yield to the cutting and shaping process. Be a living stone that will one day sparkle with the glory of God and shine with the light of his righteousness. That's what it means to be a jewel in his crown.
