Treasures in a Tiny Box

Friday I went to a local garage sale and found a few little items...one being this sweet box of Scripture cards! They are in great condition, but it was the "used" aspect of them that sold me on them. Some person used these for a time, as can be seen by the edges of the cards. God's Word will never come back to Him void. Where He sends it, it will perform His will. God's Word is a Treasure, each verse a pearl or diamond, a ruby or sapphire of wisdom, love, history, and salvation that has stood and will stand throughout all eternity, for God's Word is His Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. The inside of the cover on the box was wonderful too, hopefully you can read it in the picture. My hubby is a pastor, and one of the things he's mentioned over and over at our church is this: We see so many books available for a lot of money at the 'Christian' book store on the topic of "self help", when in reality the only book we need is the Bible, God's Word. It's available in its entirety at the Dollar store in town, for ONLY A DOLLAR! Just think...we spend countless hours watching television, reading novels or magazines or those expensive 'self-help' books, and we spend so little time actually reading God's Word. If I put a little tiny Scripture card by my kitchen sink, I will probably read it over at least 6 times during the day. If I pick up my Bible and read IT every day, I have read what God Himself says about who I am, who HE is, and what my responsibilities as His child are. Keeping His Word in my mind throughout the day is the best "self" help I can give myself!! Pick up your Bible today and read it...I dare you!!

What an amazing find and I just love this post! So true we get our priorities all messed up and I too saw the Bibles at the Dollar Tree for a mere dollar...best dollar you'll ever spend!

Big Hugs,
