    My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and bide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then thou shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
    PROVERBS 2:1-5

    Following Christ requires our all. In order for us to walk in His footsteps, we must be totally dedicated in body, mind and soul. We need to listen carefully to the Word of God, and we must learn to apply it. We should spend time in contemplation, using our minds to gain a deeper understanding of God's will. We should open our hearts in order to feel God's presence in our lives. We should praise God with our voices, and shout His glories. We should talk with other believers, and share our questions and experiences.

    We devote such great energies to the acquisition of material goods. Wealth is so appealing. Yet we fail to understand that true wealth comes only through a relationship with God. The knowledge of God is worth more than the finest riches. God desires that we pursue Him with the same devotion that we pursue material gain. Let that be our aim.

    Dear Heavenly Father, No matter what we own, what we might possess, with You we have nothing. Turn our sight from this world, dear God, and help us to seek only You, body, mind and soul. Amen and Amen.
