The parable of the saver is a powerful metaphor for the need to be patient with the Word of God. And can only appreciate the truth of the Word with the gift of time. Understanding comes with discernment.

Am I patient in my prayer with Scripture? Am I humble enough to stand in the presence of the mystery of the word of God? How do I respond when what I believe is challenged?

O Holy Spirit, inspire my reading of Scripture. May my prayer with and study of the Word deepen my sense of awe before the truth.
