What if you held the secret to a successful life hidden in your back pocket? What if you possessed the cure for Cancer? What if you knew the way to live forever, without pain, anxiety, depression, or fear? What if you had the answer for all the troubles that plague this world tucked away in a safe? Of course everyone is looking for answers to these questions and maybe in our lifetime one will be answered, but soon another question will pop up to replace it.
If you did have the answers for these questions, would you be excited to share them with others? Maybe, but you might choose to keep them to yourself so only you would profit from them.
We have the answers to all our earthly problems in God’s message to us – His written Word, the Bible. That book may be collecting dust on your coffee table. That treasure trough of life saving information just might give you and the rest of the world hope. It contains healing, inspired words which can move mountains and change hearts.
Remember how your faith grew as you dug deeper into God’s Word? Remember the comfort you received from it during troubling times? Remember the truth of life giving salvation you gained by stumbling through its pages?
When we have a treasure like this we absolutely need to share it with others. If not, it’s like hanging onto the cure for every problem and hoarding it for yourself. Let others know about it. God gave it to us to be shared.
