Ruby is a sensation! Everyone says so. She is vibrant, warm, vivid, and promotes love wherever she goes. She is multifaceted in her interational appeal and is accustomed to royalty. I personally am drawn to her saguine charm. Quite honestly, Ruby’s a gem! No, really, I’m speaking of the gem.
For a long time rubies were primarily from India and were so treasured that rulers, on hearing a particularly beautiful ruby had been found, would send out digitaries to meet and escort the gemstone. Wouldn’t you love to be treated that way? C’mon, really.
One thing we know for sure: rubies are a valued treasure.
Scripture tells us that we would be wealthier if, instead of gathering rubies, we became aficionados of wisdom by passionately chipping away in the rich-veined mines of God’s Word to accrue true wealth. This wealth is stored up within for us to use to live passionately and to invest generously in others.
Proverbs 8:11 For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
Wisdom is winsome. It’s love-based. It resonates with morality, resounds with truth, restores dignity, and reforms the heart. And it gives us something to say that’s worth hearing.
