Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 02/22/2015

(This is showing up late, because I put in the wrong date in the scheduler!)

Find the hidden easter egg of wisdom, and get some clues at Proverbial Thought!

One thing I really enjoy about some movies and television shows is the idea of easter eggs, those little things hidden in the story and imagery that may not be noticed the first time through. (An example of this is how the pizza delivery truck from Toy Story can be found somehow in all of Pixar’s movies.)

There are easter eggs in life, too. I do not mean those plasticky ovoids full of candy, nor eggs dyed in fun colors. Rather, those interesting things we find that bring joy and happiness to our lives.

What is the greatest easter egg? (You may know where I am going with this …)

Does not wisdom call?
    Does not understanding raise her voice?
On the heights beside the way,
    at the crossroads she takes her stand;
beside the gates in front of the town,
    at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud:
“To you, O men, I call,
    and my cry is to the children of man.

I love those who love me,
    and those who seek me diligently find me.

For whoever finds me finds life
    and obtains favor from the Lord …
Proverbs 8:1-4, 17, 35, ESV

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. . . . And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
1 Corinthians 1:22-24, 30-31

 

easter eggs

our lives are like easter egg hunts

we spend our time looking for truth

every so often we find something

that our spirits will just cling to

pieces of God that we hold on to

trying to get Him to seem real

but are we missing the whole picture

are we missing out on a bigger deal

what if we are the easter eggs

that even in all of our searching

we were the objects being sought

we are desired by Jesus the King

in all of our looking around

we miss that He was looking first

that we were created for Him

and that is why He came to earth

we can keep on searching for truth

for we will not fail to find it

when we realize He is the Truth

and the real reason we exist

and He started His search for us

from back in eternity past

desiring fellowship with us

and that is all that He asks
