Hidden Gold

Reg Grant on December 1, 2009 in DTS Devotional

Peter Pan grew up to become a corporate shark – at least in the movie. Wendy, noting his changed character, remarks sardonically, “Why Peter, you’ve become a pirate!” It’s Christmas, when we should be the most childlike and full of wonder, and yet we find ourselves rushing about, consumed with consuming, with digging up the hidden gold. “But he said to them, ‘Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been raised! He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him.’” (Mark 16:6) The real Christmas treasure didn’t stay buried.
