“The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord." Proverbs 18:22
“You are my private garden, my treasure, my bride, a secluded spring, a hidden fountain.” Song of Songs 4:12
“You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace.” Song of Songs 4:9
It's Wifey Wednesday and this is my love, my wife of 21 years. She is my treasure, and that treasure grows more valuable and beautiful everyday. When you invest money in the bank or stock market, it grows over time if the economy or what you invested in does well. When we invest in people and help the treasures within them grow, that investment that's poured out overflows onto others and eventually creates more treasures.
There might be things we see in others that are flaws we don't like or could do without. Are you focusing on all that, or is your focus on what makes them a treasure to God? More than likely, what makes them a treasure to God is what makes them a treasure to you also. God has created them, and you, to show His true beauty of Love and Faithfulness to the world. It's like God literally painted a picture to show the world what He looks like. Treasure the people and moments around you, and pretty soon you will see your treasure Grow!
