sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Gold is desired as the foundation for currency and a sign of wealth. The richest in the land place it in their homes and palaces and expose it in their automobiles. Gold jewelry is a sign of opulence and is purchased by many for future security purposes.
We would seldom consider a book as more precious than gold. Yet the Bible is precisely that. It can change the hearts and minds in a way nothing else can. Not only are the words living and active, but they are also able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). The Bible is filled with the message of forgiveness through a living God and reveals the sacrificial love it took from Christ Jesus to offer Himself as our Redeemer from sin. Indeed the most amazing power of the Bible is the revelation of the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ (John 1:1-4, 14). Jesus is Light that brings hope to man, enlightens the minds of those who love Him, and removes the darkness of sin and death forever.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for providing me with richest gold of all – You and Your Word. Amen.
