For this is contained in Scripture: "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED." - 1 Peter 2:6
In building the Texas capitol, only one type of stone would do—pink marble, quarried from Granite Mountain near Marble Falls, Texas. “Texas Pink” was the choice stone for the building that stands in Austin. There’s plenty of other stone in Texas, but it wasn’t deemed worthy for the capitol. There’s an abundance of material for the foundation and structure of a human life, but there’s only one “choice stone”—the Lord Jesus Christ. All else is pebbles or crumbling shale.
