As a child, I often played hide-n-seek.
Hide-n-seek was a favourite game to play with our own children, especially in holiday homes, with so many fun places to hide.
Turning the lights off at night and hiding in the dark was always a riot.
Remember counting to 10, then shouting “Here I come, ready or not!?”
𝐒𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 to find someone in the dark with a torch light was such fun!
The word 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤 means to go in search of, try to discover, try to acquire, with energy, direction, passion, and purpose. And that was always the case with hide-n-seek!
𝐒𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 implies so much more than merely looking.
𝐒𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 is always more of a journey, than any single event.
And on any journey, there are always many peaks and valleys.
I encounter many in the world looking for answers to the question that Jesus asked in the New Testament, “What 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤 ye?” – John 1:38
How would you answer Jesus’ question?
Are you 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 something?
Money, wealth, a job, success, a good reputation, happiness, security, comfort?
Like many things in life, success, money, security, are fleeting, elusive, often uncertain and anything but guaranteed.
Are you scrambling in the dark?
Where are you 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 with your torchlight in hand?
In their response to Jesus, the disciples responded by saying they were not 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 something, but rather 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐨𝐧𝐞.
They were 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 the Messiah.
The disciples weren’t the only 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 that day.
Jesus Christ too, was and is a 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐞𝐫.
He too is looking for disciples to follow Him, two millennia ago and today.
Real happiness does not come from 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 things; it comes from 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 Jesus.
As you 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤 for Jesus Christ, you’ll recognise too, that He is 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 you.
His light is far more powerful than your torchlight.
Daily, honest 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 of truth find an answer to the question, “What 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤 ye” through missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
And you can too.
What 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐤 ye?
