Thrill of Adventure

treasureThere’s just something about finding something hidden that excites us:

Matthew 13:44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”

Jesus knew–far better than any of us–that explosion of giddiness humans experience when we find any kind of treasure. If you’re a modern day person itching for adventure, Youth Ministry Exchange has an article on geocaching you just might be interested in, and while the article is written for and about youth leaders, it would work well with any group of people: mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, small groups, friends, etc.:

You’re trekking through a wooded area on the outskirts of your local park, scanning the undergrowth for signs of the treasure. Your GPS tells you that you’re closing in, but you still don’t have a visual on the target. Then you spy it. High in the tree to the left, an ammo-box hoisted into the bare winter tree with a camouflage rope. Your partner unties the slip knot from the tree and slowly lowers the awaited treasure into your arms. Sound like fun?
