Myanmar is known for their production of jade. Miners in that country recently unearthed one of the largest jade stones ever found. The stone is 18 feet wide and 9 feet high. It’s estimated worth is $170 million. That is some precious stone!
However, there is a stone that is much more valuable. The Bible describes it in 1 Peter 2:6-7—“For in Scripture it says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’ Now to you who believe, this stone is precious…”
This stone, of course, is Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world and the cornerstone of our faith. He is indeed a precious stone! Let us give him all the praise and honor and recognition that he deserves.
