I will praise Thee; for I am Fearfully and Wonderfully made: Marvelous are THY WORKS; (including the Creation of you) and that my soul Knoweth right well. How Precious also are Thy Thoughts unto me, O God! HOW GREAT is the sum of them! Psalm 139:14,17. How Precious also are Thy Thoughts unto me, O God! how Great is the Sum of them! If I should count them, THEY ARE MORE IN NUMBER THAN THE SAND: when I awake, I am still with thee. Psalm 139:17-18. I will make a man More Precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Isaiah 13:12. That the Trial of your Faith, BEING MUCH MORE PRECIOUS than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto Praise and Honour and Glory at the Appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7. Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:18-19. Whereby are given unto us EXCEEDING GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES: that by these ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your Faith Virtue; and to Virtue Knowledge; And to Knowledge Temperance; and to Temperance Patience; and to Patience Godliness; And to Godliness Brotherly Kindness; and to Brotherly Kindness Charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, THEY MAKE YOU that ye shall neither be barren nor unFRUITFUL IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. 2 Peter 1:4-8. If we in Christ, and Christ in us are considered MORE PRECIOUS than silver and gold, wouldn't it make Biblical Sense that Christ will take PERFECT CARE of His Most Precious of Things? That He will ONLY do to us that which Grows us in Christ and CHRISTLIKENESS, and Magnifies Him as our Sword and Shield, AND as our Keeper and Protector? If we are His, we will, Be Blessed.
