Some people may say something is important because of its value. They want to explore something and made their decisions based in the information they had received. Some having the access of the vast field of science and high technology they could easily draw something to conclude according to what they had seen and observed. Yes, but sad to say that some were unable to get the substance that need to be considered above all, and what is it? Is it gold or diamond?
Factors to be considered to decide which of these are more valuable or important. The first is its practical usage. What is the importance of a thing of which you cannot use it? Like for example the silver and the gold, silver are often used by everybody in all different transactions and need in daily existence lesser value compare to gold but so relevant. The children and the adults both are using it freely and easily. They could bring it to the church, market, to schools, to shopping malls and even to their place of recreation to play and relax. In other words they really have this for the comfort of their lives. Some will go to the beaches, to spend their moments of loneliness and also happiness. But silver will be with them still. So practically silver could be used anytime, and could be brought by anybody elsewhere without hassle.
How about gold? Yes we know that gold is one of the metallic elements that people wanted to own and even commit violent act for them to acquire it. But despite the fact that it is highly wanted, you cannot bring it easily wherever you may go. Some people who have those things they buried it under the ground, in their closet or vaults for fear of loosing it. It will remain there hidden no use at all. It is not so practical to have more of these. So much so with the diamonds. When you have it as jewelry, you should be aware that many would interest it even in exchange of the owner’s life. The robbers are always ready to die and to kill for that thing. So the most important thing of all is those things that you can have its full usage at any time. Yes it’s up for you to decide which is more important to you. It depends upon your choice. But Jesus put His high regards to all mankind. We are all precious in His hands.
“I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Isaiah 13:12 (KJV)”
