North Americans love their “stuff.” This has resulted in TV shows such as “American Pickers,” Storage Wars, and the grandfather of them all, “The Antique Road Show.” Many people try to get rid of unwanted possessions by yard sales, while other people dream of a valuable heirloom from great grandmother’s attic. But most of us succumb to the lure of the treasure hunt at one time or another. However, the greatest treasure is never found in our possessions. Paul the Apostle, writing in the New Testament, wished that “people may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” That’s because when we are properly related to Christ, by faith, we have the twin treasures of forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life. The critical question each one of us needs to ask is, “Have I discovered these treasures yet?
