“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments and statutes of the Lord, which I am commanding you today for your good?” Deuteronomy 10:12,13
In today’s story, Miss Beatrice and the children decide on having a club. Since the purpose is to discover treasures in God’s Word, they decide to call it The Treasure Club. The above verses are used as a motto. I thank my friend Nancy Gilbert Waldrep for providing an acrostic for the motto. The children will use one hand and five fingers to learn and remember it.
- Adore the Lord
- Desire to serve Him
- Obey His Word
- Respect His commandments
- Enjoy His friendship
My desire is that we all learn, more and more, that all treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ. A teenage boy in Africa, an orphan, when asked what he desired, said, “I have everything; I have Jesus.” But his desire was to have a closer walk with the Lord. How I wish we all would have that desire!
