The Hidden Things

That path no bird of prey knows, and the falcon’s eye has not seen it. The proud beasts have not trodden it; the lion has not passed over it. Man puts his hand to the flinty rock and overturns mountains by the roots. He cuts out channels in the rocks, and his eye sees every precious thing. He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle, and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light.
Job 28:7–11
The Hidden Things
Animals have no use for money. They neither care for nor desire wealth.  Their base instincts guide them.  They walk over the gold and ignore diamonds.  To them these things remain hidden. Yet for us humans they can become an obsession.  We “overturn mountains” and dam up the streams” in order to get at these hidden things. But no matter the amount of wealth we accumulate it is never enough. And no matter how deep we dig we will never find true knowledge of God.  For that we must mine another source, namely the Bible.  In there is the most precious thing which God has to give us, Christ Jesus.  In Him we are given life and salvation.  In faith the treasures of heaven are opened to all who believe.  The hidden things are revealed, and we know Christ as our Savior. This is a priceless gift no amount of money can buy and it is given freely.
