Today’s challenge is “treasure boxes.”
When I think of treasure boxes currently, I think of Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” This is the theme verse for Lads to Leaders 2016, so this is what we are working on in a number of areas. Our heads and hearts are being trained to hold the treasure that God has given to us. We are learning sign language so that we can speak to those who cannot hear. We are studying Matthew so that we know it more thoroughly. We are working on serving others. We are memorizing scripture. We are going to create scrapbooks and banners to share with others our beliefs and hope. So these “treasure boxes” are certainly the most special ones I have in my possession.
And on the more physical side of the topic, all of us girls love little boxes. You will find them all over the house. Some of them are actually not so little. My most special is the one my dad made for me and gave to me when I turned 16 – my cedar chest.
I have a lovely jewelry box that my husband gave me the night before our wedding, as well as one I got when I graduated and one a giggly girls gave me for mother’s day one year.
Each girl has several special boxes, from jeweled ones to ceramic one to pretty paper boxes. Anything to make us smile and help contain the clutter.
But we will do our best to forever hold fast to the true treasure – our Lord and Savior.
