I recently saw a strange sign in a storefront window.
It read, ‘We do not accept cash.’ Needless to say, it caught my attention; I’m familiar with stores refusing personal checks but this restriction was new to me. Barter, anyone?
During the gold rush days, gold was likely a common form of exchange. I’ve seen old prospectors in Westerns; they paid for goods and services with gold dust, nuggets and gold pieces.
‘We don’t accept gold.’ I don’t think so!
“Instruction from Your lips is better for me
than thousands of gold and silver pieces (Psalm 119:72 HCSB).”
Oh, that we would seek His instruction; such wealth cannot be calculated.
“The fear of the Lord is pure,
the ordinances of the Lord are reliable
and altogether righteous.
They are more desirable than gold—
than an abundance of pure gold;
and sweeter than honey,
which comes from the honeycomb.
In addition, Your servant is warned by them;
there is great reward in keeping them (Psalm 19:9-11 HCSB).”
Oh, that we would pray for His wisdom…
how much better it is than gold (Proverbs 16:16a HCSB).”
