The Parent Race: The Best Goal - Day 2

Opening Prayer:

Lord, Thank you for your word.  Show us your truth and grant us godly wisdom.            

Read: Proverbs 3:14 (NIV)

“…for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”

 Reflect:

One of my favorite movie-flicks is Fool's Gold.  The story revolves around a couple, Finn and Tess, who seek to find the sunken Spanish ship Aralia, along with its treasure of the Queen's Dowry, which went down off the coast of Florida.  During their search, all their possessions and even their marriage were challenged as they put it all on the line to find this lost treasure. Most people love a good treasure hunt. Annual Medallion hunts and even Easter egg hunting proves this to be true.

Apply:

In Matthew 13:45-46, Jesus tells the parable of the pearl of great price in which a merchant sells all that he owns to purchase this special pearl. Our scripture for today describes the true value of wisdom as far greater than silver, gold or even a pearl. As Finn and Tess overcome numerous obstacles and challenges, they finally rejoice as they discover the mother-lode!   With their example, let's put on our mask, fins, and snorkel and dive into God's word.  As we seek Godly wisdom, we will discover God’s word has much more treasure then all the Earth's oceans combined and, best of all, it’s eternal. Seek God daily and he will reveal to you his true treasure of godly wisdom.

Closing Prayer:

Lord, open our minds to your truth.  Grant us your wisdom and help us to be faithful to guard that treasure.
