The Insects

There is a specific bush in my yard that seems to attract green and yellow flies that almost look metallic.

Sleek and futuristic looking, I can imagine a fancy sports car or racing motorcycle styled from its design.

After doing some research, I found that this insect is called simply, “Long-legged Fly.”

I have read that there are approximately nine hundred thousand different kinds of insects in the world that we know about.

Nine hundred thousand!

There are many more yet to be discovered.

Psalm 50:11 reads,

I know every bird in the mountains,
    and the insects in the fields are Mine.

It wouldn’t matter if there were thirty million insects.

God would know every one.

God knows each one of us, too.

We can trust that we are always in His sight and He is divinely focused on every person, all the time…

He Sold Everything

When I walked into the room, I started noticing the decorations immediately.

As I looked up toward the ceiling, I saw two trunks on a shelf.

I wonder what was inside them?

Trunks and chests are for safe keeping.

Items that are important are stored in such special places.

If you owned a trunk or chest, what sort of things would you place there?

What would be valuable to you?

Jesus told the story of a man who had discovered something of great worth–a treasure–in a field.

Upon doing so, he sold everything that he had in order to buy the field so he could own the treasure.

Whatever it was, it was worth more to the man than anything he currently had.

When we learn of God’s gift of salvation, we have a choice to make.

We can accept His gift and leave our old way of life behind or we can leave the gift that is offered and walk away.

It’s about what we value.

What means more?

Jesus, or…….

something else?

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field—and get the treasure, too!

—Matthew 13:44
