If you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures. ~Proverbs 2:4
At one point or another in our lives, I think we've all been on a Treasure Hunt of some sort. Usually the prize you are hunting for is going to be worth all the trouble you go through to find it.
We read books & watch movies of finding great pirates treasuries. I love movies like Pirates of the Carribean, The Mummy and The Goonies where you can see heaping piles of gold, silver and sparkling gems like rubies, emeralds & diamonds.
I also think of Easter, where children get to hunt for their own little treasures, like chocolates, colored eggs or surprises. There is always a determination in the hunt. Most will not give up after looking in one spot & not finding their prize.
So should it be when we seek wisdom. We must seek it with a hunger & determination, like it is the most precious treasure we could ever find, not giving up until we have it!
