Panning for Gold

Panning for Gold can be a very tiring job, often with little reward. However, when a prospector perseveres in their panning the rewards can be life changing. Solomon writes to us in Proverbs 2 and encourages us to search for Wisdom as if we were prospectors panning for gold. When we find Godly wisdom the rewards will be unbelievable.

"Good friend, take to heart what I’m telling you;
    collect my counsels and guard them with your life.
Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom;
    set your heart on a life of Understanding.
That’s right—if you make Insight your priority,
    and won’t take no for an answer,
Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold,
    like an adventurer on a treasure hunt,
Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours;
    you’ll have come upon the Knowledge of God." - Proverbs 2:1-5 (Message)

Let us earnestly search for Wisdom in the new year and may the Spirit of God guide us in all our decisions.

Living in Grace
