I do like to dig in the dirt. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a lot of time on our hands. Hmmm, I’m actually thinking about digging a hole to put my quail’s dung in. I can use the dirt I have now that was in my old burn pile, replace it with waste, burn on top of it, and next year, I’ll have some good dirt for my garden. Sounds like I’ll be busy tomorrow.
We dig for many reasons – usually to plant flowers, bushes, or a garden. Living in south Louisiana, I have dug with a shovel and hit water. In 1848, people rushed to California to dig for gold. My grandfather migrated from Spain to West Virginia to dig for coal. Others will dig for precious stones, copper, silver, and hidden treasures.
In the Bible, we find men also did a lot of digging. The need for wells was a necessity. Abraham and Issac were known for digging wells.
The Bible is the most wonderful book ever written. Bibles come in many fonts and sizes, maybe 3/4 of an inch to 3 inches or more; yet, you can dig ‘til the day you die and never find all the golden nuggets and hidden treasures. The more you dig, the more your desire grows. So, dig deeper into the unending treasures of happiness, joy, peace, truth, and knowledge of the love of God and everlasting life. Go ahead, no telling what you will find!
“He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Luke 6:48)
“…and dig for it more than for hid treasures…” (Job 3: 21)
