What a find!

If you seek it like silver, and search for it as for hidden treasures—
then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.  Proverbs 2:4-5

      Last month a man cleaned out his deceased grandfather’s house.  He found much of what you might expect from an abandoned home.  Let’s cut to the chase and just call it all junk.  Well, not all of it!  In fact, some have labeled one of his finds as “cardboard gold.”  Stored away in the attic was a box of mint-condition baseball cards with names like Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Christy Mathews.  You baseball buffs are probably drooling.  For the rest of you, just know the cards have been conservatively valued at $3 million.  Go check your attics!

   Trading cards aside, it isn’t uncommon to be amazed at what we find when we are searching for God.  Life and faith with God are not rigid.  God moves in powerful ways, opening our eyes to newness each day.  The kingdom of God is very near.  Chances are, however, you and I have missed it many times.  It hasn’t been covered in dust, stored away in an attic.  No, we’ve probably been looking elsewhere, looking for something else or just not paying attention.  But when we seek, we find, and then we realize God is working all around us—what a find!
