Treasure Beyond Wealth

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…” that is we have the treasure of Jesus Christ with the light, knowledge, and power He brings within these earthen vessels of clay, which like all vessels made of clay are weak and very fragile.

In Joshua 3:1-5 we see a principle that when employed can be very beneficial, “Joshua rose early in the morning;” here it was to lead the people of Israel on the next “leg” of their journey toward the land God promised them for a possession.
