"My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path" (Proverbs 2:1-9)
Today's Morsel: My daughter-in-law called us one day to tell us that she had gotten a metal detector. I asked her what she was going to do with it? She said, "I'm going to look for treasures." Many people have purchased such an item and have found many things. Things such as lost coins, rings, keys, weapons, and the list goes on and on. What if we could purchase an item that found wisdom, knowledge, and understanding? I wonder how many people would purchase it. Solomon said that if we were to cry after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. These things are within our Bibles and within our reach, but we must be zealous to locate them. We must dig around in the Word to find the hidden things of God, as "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). As one gold miner exclaimed, "There's gold in them there hills!
Sing: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you, hallelu, hallelujah.
