“I would really love to go on an archaeological dig.” -Megan Fox
Today I participated in an archeological dig for artifacts left behind from an ancient Judean civilization dating back 2200 years ago. Fifty feet down in the earth into the depths of a steep cave, I was thrilled when I found a bone from a large animal and several pieces of pottery. Later I was disappointed to learn that someone invited to participate in the dig, chose not to, simply because she did not want to get dirty. The reality is that this individual will never understand what she missed out on because she chose to stay at the surface. Telling her about this experience just isn’t the same as her actually experiencing it for herself. There’s a lesson to be learned: As soon as we get past reading the Bible at its surface then we begin to find treasures that we never would have otherwise known about. God has more for you; go deeper.
Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures (Proverbs 2:4, NLT).
