Finding Treasure

A man who has riches without understanding is like the beasts that perish.Psalm 49:20 (NIV)

Rhonda Rhea panicked.  She searched high and low for her debit card.  But her purse was filled with a strange collection of random ‘stuff’ a ball of fuzz that looked like a dead rodent, enough breath mints to freshen a platoon, four different shades of nail polish and reams of receipts.  But, still no card.

She realized that part of her panic was because she needed a quiet time with the Lord.  She stopped to focus on God’s word – opened her Bible – and out fell her card!  She had used her card as a book marker.

It’s true she found real treasure in God’s Word that morning – and I don’t mean her debit card.  The real treasure we enjoy is the wisdom that comes from knowing Christ and meditating on His Word.

Dear one, find your wealth in time with Jesus.
