TRACKING DOWN TREASURE

If you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will ... find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom. -Proverbs 2:4-6

King Solomon wrote this proverb, and he knew all about searching for treasure. Once a year his ships sailed south to a mysterious African land called Ophir and came back loaded down with gold. Solomon took in more than twenty-five tons of gold a year! For centuries, people have wondered where those gold mines were, but the secret's lost now.

What would you do if you found a genuine treasure map that led to King Solomon's mines or some other buried treasure? You'd be mighty interested in tracking down that treasure, right? Even if you had to crawl up mountains and hack through jungles, you'd keep at it. It's worth it for riches like that! Think how much you get into searching for treasure when it's just graphics in a computer game.

There's treasure in the Bible too-real treasure. The knowledge of God is worth more than buried treasure ... and definitely more than computer-animated jewels. How does that figure? Simple. Having faith in Jesus guarantees you'll have eternallife in a fantastic paradise beyond your wildest dreams. Obeying God's Word gives you heavenly rewards that'll still glow like the sun a million years after diamonds have turned to dust.

Those are good reasons to read your Bible. Dig in, and you'll come out with your mind full of wisdom and your heart full of spiritual treasure.
