Pickers

P

In its currently accepted form, ‘Pickers’ relates to those who seek treasure in barns, attics, and storage sheds.  So often a Picker is portrayed as a person that pays the lowest dollar amount for the highest potential gain. A sort of finders-keepers methodology.

In the Word today I see a string of very valuable treasures to pick through. There are gems of solid truth connected by lines of text that support them. I am going to pick out the most brilliant diamonds to make a necklace of holy instruction (maybe a sort of rosary). The best part is that these priceless gems are free, and here for all to cherish as their own.
