Don’t Call Me a Ruby

rubies

These are beautiful, but according to Proverbs 31:10, my price and yours is far above these.

Don’t call me a ruby

I’m far more valuable than that

I’m more precious than any jewel as a matter of fact

Virtue is my nature and truth is etched within

If you had to put me on a value scale I’d be a perfect ten

I’m wrapped in a radiant shade of red, but like I said,

Don’t Call Me a Ruby

I’m far more valuable than that.

I’ve been hand picked by the Master

and polished just so

through every trial and every test my brilliance–it shows

The Word is my standard and its light directs my way

If I fall into temptation, His Word I will obey

I don’t need a man to feel complete, so I’ll repeat

Don’t Call Me a Ruby

I’m far more valuable than that.

I will not be disrespected or neglected

because my Father cares for me

He’s got my heart in his hands and that’s the best place that it can be

If I ever forget my true worth, He’ll remind me with his touch

I’m made in His image–by Him and for Him; that’s why I’m worth so much

I’m more than just my shape, and by the way, let me reiterate

Don’t call me a ruby

I’m worth far more than that!

As always…I’m just sayin’.

I’m not the best at poetry, so let me know what you think by commenting below.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
