On being "more precious than fine gold"

Nothing could be more precious to God than His children. And it is not difficult to say that we all are His children. In fact, if we were to read the Bible aloud, we'd have to say it more than once! It is also truly natural to live as God's children, as the pure and perfect likeness of God, good. Yet as if to show the vast difference between what people could do in this direction and what they actually are doing, the Bible laments, "How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!... The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers. ..!" Lam. 4:1, 2.

Because God, divine Life or Spirit, is invariably radiant and unchanging, man created spiritual in His likeness cannot dim or change. But on the human scene, sickness, sin, deprivation, cruelty, would deceive many into believing that God's man has fallen into a state of impurity.
