Diamonds have many facets, all of them reflecting light in beautiful ways. And diamonds are the hardest substance kown. And diamonds are valuable. All of this makes for a helpful spiritual metaphor. We, in our essence, are like diamonds. As Jesus said about us, "You are the light of the world." And he said we are to "Love one another", that is, to let our light shine. Let our faith in God the Good be steadfast; this firm belief will carry us through all of life.
