In Israel there are healthy young men who live off of public assistance, not because they can't find a job, but because they devote their life to studying the Torah. The ultra-Orthodox Haredim do little else but study, at the expense of getting a job or anything else. There's a message here. The Haredim consider the study of God's Word to be more important than anything else in their lives. The Israeli government apparently agrees. The Bible tells us to work and take care of our families. Yet we could learn from the Haredim. They consider God's Word to be their greatest treasure - no sacrifice is too great on its behalf. If only most believers felt the same way. They spend all their days studying the Bible and for the most, they only study the Torah, the first five books. We have the entire Bible, the finished revelation, the New Testament, the Gospel of Salvation. Yet we let even the smallest distractions take us away from Scripture. How much more should we be the ones who dedicate ourselves to the receiving of God's Word. For we have a treasure even greater than that of the Haredim.rn
