Treasure Verse Tuesday - Proverbs 8:17-21


"I love those who love me, and those who seek me early find me. With me are honor, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."
Proverbs 8:17-21


I love this passage of scripture! Here is what is popping out to me today:


He loves me.


I want to seek Him early --- early each morning and early before making decisions or taking a certain path. Seek Him early for my children (praying now for their future spouses, etc.)
Here's the Greek:
1) to seek, seek early or earnestly, look early or diligently for
a) (Qal) to look for diligently, seek
b) (Piel) to seek, seek early


With Him are honor, durable (!) riches and righteousness. Ahhhh.....peaceful.


The fruit He yields is priceless.


Walking in righteousness and justice, He causes those who love Him to inherit substance. Inherit substance! I love that!

One verse with so much "meat" and lots to be thankful for all at the same time.

What He gives endures forever! There is NOTHING here on earth worth striving for above His gifts and love!

Blessings sweet friend!

Ahhh, that verse, it is like I can feel the junk fade away and all that is left is His glory. Powerful...In the morning when I pray over verses, I try to visualize them into my own life...the picture here is so beautiful! The big one for me is He loves me, little ol' me, wow...

Have a wonderful day!
Love,

Amen: "My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver." I'd rather have Jesus than silver and gold.
