Finding Lost Treasure

The man slowly scanned back and forth across the sand. Large gray headphones covering his ears as he intently listened, waiting to hear the noise signaling he'd found a buried treasure.

I've recently noticed a rise in the amount of people with metal detectors at the beach and parks. These high tech devices enable it's owner to detect any traces of metal (coins, jewelery, gold, silver etc) that may be buried or hidden.

You may often daydream about winning the lottery, finding lost treasure or hitting the jackpot in Las Vegas; but you don't realize that you have a treasure at your disposal that's worth more than gold. It can give you wisdom beyond education. It can give you comfort when you feel inconsolable. It can give you peace when you're lost in discontent. It can give you hope when you've lost faith. It can give you a relationship that will never let you down or disappoint you.

This treasure is in your home, waiting for you to find it's true worth and value; waiting for you to stop seeking worldly riches and seek first something far more valuable. Open up your Bible each day and read all that God has for you. There is a true treasure in store for you.Your life will be transformed as you develop a relationship with your Savior Jesus Christ. You will find true peace, wisdom and happiness; A treasure worth more than gold, silver, diamonds or rubies. Open up your hidden treasure today and discover God's riches.

"The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb." Psalm 19:7-11
