I am “rich” when I listen to my grandchildren laugh and squeal in delight, or when my husband holds my hand when we go out, not to mention being in my garden, feeling warm dirt under my feet and a gentle breeze blowing against my cheek. The material treasures of this world do not compare with these joyfully “rich” experiences.
And then there is peace. Peace is an element of “richness” that has no comparison. Who or what on this earth can give us peace? “Rich” is the soul who finds Peace at his or her doorstep, and joyful is the one who steps into His path.
“Rich” can mean a deepening of color or taste, like the “rich” auburn-red of a child’s hair or the deep “richness” of a bite of chocolate. But a deepening of a relationship can be one of the most “richest” of pleasures.
With all that this entire world has to offer, none of these compare to the “riches” we are storing up in Heaven “where moth does not corrupt, nor thieves break through and steal.” Our Father’s treasure trove is full and waiting. Let nothing keep us from it.
