“That their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2-3)
The wealth of this world is temporary; yet this world’s wealth is what the nations fight over. The wealth of the Lord comes in the love one shares with others. Come then into the true wealth. Live into the life which is eternal. In Him are the hidden treasures of wisdom and understanding. Live then as you have been created to live and not as one who is seeking after that which will fail.
Lord, I am caught up in what this world promotes. I am led by what this world thinks important. Guide me, Lord, so that I may be led by You and not by the things of this world. Help me now and always to see that in You alone is all hope and the only future anyone should want to have. Guide me out of ignorance and into understanding. Guide me into Your way, O Lord.
Lord Jesus, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly. Lead me now and always to see that in You alone is all hope. Lead me into the life filled with the wisdom and understanding that You alone can give. Lead me, Lord, so that I would humbly follow wherever You lead. Thank You, dear Savior, for saving me in order that I may have this gift. Amen.
