March 13: National Jewel Day

National Jewel Day is celebrated every March 13.

So . . . what kinds are you getting for me? 🙂

Instead of picking just one verse today, I decided to pull three verses from Proverbs, each describing something more precious than precious jewels. First off, wisdom:

Choose my instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Proverbs 8:10 & 11

Second, lips that speak knowledge (amen!):

Gold there is, and rubies in abundance,
but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel.

Proverbs 20:15

Third, a wife of noble character:

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.

Proverbs 31:10

So, obviously, there are things that are far more valuable than rubies, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, etc., but, on the other hand . . . those jewels aren’t bad themselves either!
