I love treasure hunting shows and movies. They search and search for clues to the elusive treasure. I’ve lost things before and had to “treasure hunt” – My kid’s cell phone, their keys, etc…. I have actually lost some of my stuff as well. I will start hunting to find it. I do think it would be cool to go on a for real treasure hunt looking in old sunken ships, or behind the scenes at a museum or temple of doom.
Isaiah speaks of other treasure and I think He nails the definition. Check this out….2 Lord, be kind to us. We have waited for your help. Give us strength every morning. Save us when we are in trouble. 3 Your powerful voice makes people run away in fear; your greatness causes the nations to run away. 5 The Lord is very great, and he lives in a high place. He fills Jerusalem with fairness and justice. 6 He will be your safety. He is full of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. Respect for the Lord is the greatest treasure. (Isaiah 33:2-3; 5-6 NCV)
Having respect for the Lord leads in the way of obedience and honor. If I respect the Lord, I’m tuned it to what He is speaking into my life. I want to regard Him as Holy and Powerful to save me from myself and in any situation I find myself. I need His guidance in every area of my life. He is by far the greatest treasure of my life!Pressing On! Dwayne
