“Even in all that mess, the ring looked just beautiful.” Mildred Fello of Miami Beach, Florida joyfully said that after she had accidentally discarded her four-thousand-dollar diamond ring in a plastic laundry bag. Miss Fello then went to the dumping centre and began searching. With the help of the garbage crew, she finally came upon the blue bag with the diamond ring intact. Her lost ring and search for it reminds me of an even greater search. Doctor Luke wrote in the New Testament book which bears his name which he was inspired to write, “The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” He spoke of Jesus. And as valuable and desirable as a diamond is, it does not compare with the value of a soul. Our Saviour once rhetorically asked, “what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his own soul?” We all know the answer to that question.
