God's Treasure Chest

God's Treasure Chest

I have a confession to make, I love libraries. I fell in love with the library as a young girl, riding my bike across town to spend hours in the reading room. I’ve never lost that sense of childlike wonder I get each time I enter a library. It amazes me that so many wonderful books are made available to enjoy for free. It is as if my library card unlocks a treasure chest full of potential knowledge.

The Bible is just like a library in this sense. It is full of good books that contain more wisdom than I can ever comprehend. With each visit to this storehouse I can receive another piece of knowledge to help me along my way. And best of all, the Lord’s library also provides a pathway for getting to know the wonderful God I serve.

Anything done on a daily basis holds a risk of turning into an automatic routine – an action performed without thought. It is my hope that this library analogy will help me each time I approach my Bible. If I think of what a great treasure chest the Bible is, this could help breathe fresh life into my reading time. It is such a privilege that I can open God’s treasure chest whenever I need it.

Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. - Psalm 119:18
