Possessing the Priceless

Lectio: “How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! • people take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” (Ps 36:7 TNIV)

Priceless. Something priceless is too valuable to put a monetary value on it. To price it would be to cheapen it. I can compare prices on computers, or a pound of coffee, or a new car. But what about love? Peace? Joy?

God’s unfailing love is priceless. I can’t buy it. I can’t earn it. I don’t have enough to deserve it. And His love for me is beyond accounting.

How do I respond to possessing the priceless love of my Father? How will I respond today? I will not live as though resources are scarce. Though the priced has been squeezed in the midst of this economy, I am a possessor of the priceless. No economy on earth can touch His priceless affection, delight and concern.
