These are examples of treasures that brought great joy. But the most precious treasure that we can have is to know Jesus as our Savior. In our Bible verses, Paul said that all the great things that happened to him were “worth nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord” (verse 8b). Having Jesus as our Savior is the greatest joy we can have.
We have all experienced times when we did not trust God to take care of us. But we can know that He is always with us and will never let us down. Do you want to experience great joy? Give your life to God and live for Him every day.
