Treasures

Poetry

I give you my treasures

All tattered and torn

They’ve lost all their luster

They’re long over worn

At first I couldn’t see it

I didn’t have a clue

How worthless they were

Until I saw You

Philippians 3:8

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ

Hidden Treasures

Analogies

I have a table, a side coffee table, that’s been in my living room about a month or two.  I see it every day.  We use it to hold a basket of books on top and a basket of toys on the bottom.  It’s useful and it looks nice.  But today I looked over and saw it has a drawer!  Somehow I had never noticed it before.  It’s a small, discreet drawer – perfect for maybe some pens and a notepad.  The table just increased in usefulness and value to me.  Actually, it was always that way, with that extra value.  I just hadn’t noticed.

What secret treasures do you possess that the Lord hasn’t revealed to you yet?  What hidden drawers of usefulness have always been there that you just haven’t seen?

Isaiah 45:3

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
