Hidden Treasures

"Lord, all my desire is before You; and my sighing is not hidden from You." Psalms 38:9 "Look Dad!" my grandson said to his father as we were sight-seeing in the city. My grandson had found under a tree, almost blending in with the dirt and grass, a piece of Lego! Now grant it there were hundreds of people passing by this very spot (as it was some kind of festival going on in the park), but his eyes somehow zeroed in on this small piece of plastic just lying there. He grabbed it up and as he and his father were inspecting it, I was wondering what kind of germs were on it! After inspection it was decided, he had indeed found a treasure...something of value to him, something that he could use in his collection of many, many, many pieces of Lego. To me, not a Lego enthusiast, and to others passing by that very spot that day, it seemed to be an insignificant piece of plastic , if they even saw it at all.

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image. Corinthians 3:16-18 Change…is a good thing. But why do so many of us fight and resist it? You can hear it in the grumbles and murmurs of people when you change something as simple as the aisles in the grocery store. “Aisle 2 has ALWAYS been soups and snacks, now why in heaven’s name did they change it?” And God forbid don’t change the parking spaces at work, it’s an all out war. “I’ve been parking in that space for 10 years grrrrr…” Never mind that the CHANGE is so that there can be better parking spaces for everyone. Human nature is crazy and at times nuts! And if I wasn’t a human I’d… Okay, here’s another one, at the gym where I’m a member, abou
