I’m sure we all have things we  treasure, wedding presents for instance, or  things that have been in the family a  long time. Mine don’t have much monetary value, but I  treasure them.Paul speaks  of knowing God as treasure. “For God made His made His light shine in  our hearts to  give us the  light of the of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
