The value of a diamond depends on its perfection. Diamond specialist Dr. Leonard Reiffel, has written, “Flaws are particularly distressing when an imperfect diamond is turned into a finished gem.” But interestingly, by means of a laser beam, flaws in natural diamonds can now be eliminated. We are all “flawed diamonds” in God’s sight. He sees us with all our imperfections, but also sees what we can become. Then He enables us to become what He desires us to be. Polishing ourselves won’t do that. Only Christ’s death for our sins at Calvary can make us like perfect diamonds to God. Jesus said, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in me should not abide in darkness.” When we admit our wrong-doing, God can make something beautiful of us.
