Treasure...

There is something fascinating about pirates...maybe it's because I have three boys...maybe it's all the cool pirate toys I've played with over the years...maybe it's the treasure. We have many cool treasure chests. The little Playmobile treasure chests are great. Everyone wants to have a pirate map and find the hidden treasure. The treasure is what drives the pirates to go on their voyages.

Proverbs 2:1-6 says, "My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives widsom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." So...treasure, we need to search for it. The greatest treasure probably isn't gold, but rather God's wisdom.

We can have God's wisdom. It comes as a gift from God. Wisdom also comes from searching...This wisdom comes to those brave pirates who are willing to take the risk...search. Read God's Word and make it a part of who you are. Know it. Memorize it. Dwell on it. Love it. Do it. Share it. Never stop. Pirates are so focused on the treasure they loose sight of normal life. They are all about the voyage which is to lead them to the treasure. So if you dare...search like crazy!
