God's Word Is Our Treasure

"Thy word have I hidden in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." (Psalm 119:11)

Do you have a "treasure-keeper"? Most of us have a place where we keep those things that are special to us. Your special "treasure-keeping" place might be a shoebox on the top shelf of your closet, a locked safebox, a trophy case, a diary, a cookie tin, a dresser drawer--or maybe even under your bed! Our "treasures' can be all sorts of things: baseball cards, jewelry, a souvenir from a favorite vacation, a photo of your grandpa and grandma on their wedding day, a letter from a friend you met at camp, or maybe a medal you won in a competition. Whatever form your "treasure-keeper" takes, it is the treasure kept inside it that really is special to you.

Think now about a different kind of treasure--the "treasure of the heart" that is mentioned in God's Word (Matthew 12:35). In Proverbs, the writer is instructing us that our real treasure ought to be God's Word. The writer also tells us that our hearts ought to be our treasurer-keepers when it comes to this kind of treasure-keeping: Proverbs 2:1,3,5, and 6 say, "My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 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 hidden treasures; then thou shalt understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God."

There is no treasure on Earth as precious as the Word of God. As you study the Bible and memorize verses, you are storing away treasure that can never be stolen or destroyed. (See Matthew 6:19!) Keep hiding away the treasures of God's Word in your heart!

No treasure we have compares to the Word of God.

My Response:
» Do I treasure anything more than I treasure God's Word?
» How can I hold on to and use the treasure God has provided for me?

BIG Christian Word

Millenium - (mi-len'e-um)

Millenium is a word used to express one thousand (1,000) years. Many Christians use the word to refer to the time when they believe Christ and His believers will reign over the earth. During this time Satan will be bound and thrown into a pit until the thousand years are ended. (Revelation 20:2-3) "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after that he must be loosed a little season."
