Recently I had a stay in the hospital. It was not enjoyable, but it made me think about the things important to me. On thing that I treasure is my health. It is so important to everyone to have a healthy body. Eat right. get enough sleep, and dwell on pleasant thoughts. Don’t abuse your body by eating unhealthy foods. Look around you the next time you go to a fast food restaurant. Do you see many skinny people? Probably not because they are chowing down of greasy french fries and monster hamburgers where the grease is running out of them.
That’s not good. That makes gallstones, diverticulitis, and a host of other problems. We should treasure our health. In some things, I agree with Mr. Bloomburg, the mayor of New York City. He is limiting the fat served in that city. We should be doing that on our own.
Another treasure is the ability to study God’s Word. I found out that I had more time to study the Bible while I was in the hospital. I have the Bible downloaded on my Kindle. It is so easy to read and keep up with my reading that way. I found out I enjoyed reading. It was quiet and I could get more read than normal. I had more time to think about what I was reading. I know that sounds odd, but sometimes life gets in the way and we don’t have time to think about what we read. The Word has become one of my treasures.
My family has always been a treasure. They are very important to me. I’ve not been able to enjoy the ball games this year, but maybe I can soon.
Another treasure is my church family. I don’t know where I would be without them. They are more important than anything when there is sickness. They are always there. They have so much love for everyone.
I didn’t mention money, cars, or material things that I could treasure. They are not important. They don’t make me as happy as the things mentioned above. My car runs, it gets us to church and back and anyplace we want to go. I have everything I need, so I don’t need anything extra. God has blessed me over and over with what I need. I’m happy with what I have. I don’t need or want luxuries.
You may think your treasure is in money, things, or possessions; but it is in the Bible. Study it daily and find the treasures that lie there.
