Some time ago I attended an auction near Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. Among the many items up for bidding was a beautiful antique china cabinet. It was ornately crafted and it had a graceful glass door. Simply speaking, it was a magnificent piece of old-style furniture.
Do you know how much that cabinet sold for? Just guess. $22.50. That’s right. Twenty-two dollars and fifty cents! While I’m certainly no antique appraiser, I’m certain it’s worth was much, much more than a mere $22.50. Whoever bought the cabinet got a bargain. Some would even say a steal.
“Why didn’t it go for a higher price?” The only answer I can come up with is that it was not valued by potential buyers. They didn’t recognize its true worth.
In Psalm 119 the Bible says, “I rejoice at Your Word as one who finds great treasure” (v. 162). Dear reader, if God’s word is really valuable to you, you’ll study it, learn it, and most importantly, obey it. HOW MUCH is the Bible worth to you (Psalm 139:17)? What’s your bid?
Think about it.
