I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate.”
Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
When Jack Sparrow accuses Will Turner of being obsessed with treasure, Will denies that he is. Jack then reveals that not all treasure is silver and gold. Our Lord is so obsessed with His Treasure, His Bride, the Church, that He sold all He had and purchased the entire field in which the treasure was found, just so He could have the treasure. What is our obsession? What is our treasure? Is it silver and gold, earthly things? Or could it be the unsearchable and unfathomable riches of God, His Son Christ Jesus? He is the true treasure!
