The value of Him

Zechariah 11: 10-12 (Old Testament)(10) And I took my staff, Favor, and cut it in pieces, to break my covenant which I had made with all the peoples.
(11) So it was broken on that day; and thus the afflicted of the flock who were watching me realized that it was the word of the Lord.
(12) And I said to them, "If it is good in your sight, give me my wages, but if not, never mind! " So they weighed out thirty shekels of silver as my wages.
(13) Then the Lord said to me, "Throw it to the potter, that magnificent price at which I was valued by them." So I took the thirty shekels of silver and threw them to the potter in the house of the Lord.
(14) Then I cut my second staff, Union, in pieces, to break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

Matthew 27: 5
(New Testament)And he threw the pieces of silver into the sanctuary and departed;
Matthew 27: 7
And they counseled together and with the money bought the Potter's Field...

How wonderful is the Lord our shepherd, who allows us to find Favor once again in Him, that He may lead us with that Holy staff. Union also, will find her place once again in the Shepherd's hand.

(Hebrews 8: 8 ) "Behold, Days are coming, says the Lord, when I will effect a new covenant with the House of Israel and with the house of Judah."

Our God, who scattered Israel across the earth, will bring brotherhood to the nations through her, and brotherhood with Judah, He will also reestablish. He will remember our sins no more. Our every footstep, purchased by our Lord.

  1. The Intelligence and Perfection of God's Word is so humbling; it is awe inspiring.

    Thank you for your study of His Word and for sharing this deeper awareness with us. ~Maria

  2. I'm not 100% sure what to make of this... except to be saddened that Union is further away today than seemingly ever before.
