Under Your Nose
Read: Proverbs 2:1-5
"Look, Forest! An old baseball card!" exclaimed Jalen as the boys searched through a box in Grandpa's attic. "Maybe Grandpa will let us have it."
"Yeah. I'll ask him," Forest said. He disappeared through the attic's trap door while Jalen continued to look at other things Grandpa had stored up there.
"Grandpa says we can have it," Forest said when he returned. "He said we can have any other cards we find too!"
"Cool!" said Jalen, and the two continued searching through the dusty piles. "Here's another one!" Jalen called out.
Grandpa's smiling face appeared at the trap door a little later. "Find any more cards?" he asked.
"We did, Grandpa!" Jalen held up a card he had just found. "This is fun! It's like looking for treasure!"
"This is treasure," Forest told him. "These cards could be worth a lot of money, couldn't they, Grandpa? You sure you want us to keep them?"
"Keep every one you find, boys," said Grandpa.
"All right!" said Forest. He grinned. "This treasure was right under our noses, but we only just found it now."
"Under our noses?" asked Jalen.
"That's an expression that means it was right here where it could easily be found all along," Grandpa explained. "But come on down now for lunch."
After they finished eating their grilled cheese sandwiches, Grandpa reached for his Bible. "Let's look at some more treasure," he said.
Jalen looked at Grandpa's Bible. "Are there treasures in your Bible?"
Grandpa nodded. "There sure are."
Jalen and Forest looked at each other. "Really?" Forest asked. "What kind? Are they worth lots of money?"
Grandpa chuckled. "The treasures of God's Word are worth far more than money. God's treasures are His promises, His wisdom, His comfort and encouragement. They contain the treasure found in Jesus, who died for our sin and gives us eternal life." Grandpa opened the Bible. "They're right here under our noses, but we often fail to find those treasures. Let's see if we can find some right now." Manfred T. Koehler
HOW ABOUT YOU?
Are you finding God’s treasures? His Word, the Bible, is full of treasures worth far more than money—they’re things money can’t buy. Look in your Bible for encouragement and comfort offered by the Lord. Look for the hope of Jesus and all He’s done and promises to do for those who trust in Him. You’ll find these treasures lead to peace, joy, and blessings. Find some today!

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, as much as in all riches. (NKJV)
