You only are a people holy to God,
God chose you
out of all the people on Earth
as his cherished personal treasure.
Deuteronomy 14:2 (The Message)
He chose us. We are cherished. He considers us personal treasure. Fills me with awe every time I think on it. Then I look at those beautiful faces and I have a teeny taste of how He feels because they are my cherished personal treasure. They were chosen. They are adored. And I can't contain my praise and thankfulness to the One who started the legacy of adoption in me first!!
