Proverbs 2:4-5 (NLT)

4 Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.

5 Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,

and you will gain knowledge of God.


Treasure hunting involves a suspicion that something valuable is available. Most of life is not a “wow” bonanza. I propose that valuable indicators of God’s wisdom can be found in simple things.

The laugh of a child.

Sunlight through trees.

That “arranged” moment that seemed coincidental at the moment but that turned out to be providential in retrospect.

Unanswered prayers.
