Dig into these golden mines!

(Robert Leighton)

Let this commend the Scriptures much to our diligence
and affection
that their great theme is our Redeemer,
and redemption wrought by Him. They contain the doctrine
of His excellencies, and are the lively picture of His matchless
beauty. Were we more in them, we would daily see more of
Him in them
nd so of necessity love Him more. But we
must look within them
the letter is but the casethe
spiritual sense is what we should desire to see
We usually huddle them over, and see no further than
their outside, and therefore find so little sweetness in
them. We read them, but we don't search them as He
requires. Would we dig into these golden mines, we
would find treasures of comfort which cannot be spent,
but which would furnish us in the hardest times!

" My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my

commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine

ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy

voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver,

and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD,

and find the knowledge of God." Proverbs 2:1-5
