“…and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.“ (Proverbs 2:3-5)

Then set aside a time to read your Bible every day. Put it on your schedule. You can call it, “Treasure Hunting”, ’cause that’s what it is. Why? Because He’s your Precioussssss. 🙂
“Blessed is the man who finds wisdom…she is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire compares with her.” Proverbs 3:13, 15
