No matter how hard you search for something, if it is not there, you will never find it. With God, it is a different story. When we truly seek Him, we always find Him.

money, you just end up broken. 

Then out of nowhere, and I mean nowhere, an idea entered my head. I
remembered wearing my brown suit when I got $20. I went to my closet, 
but the suit was not there. 

"Have you seen my brown suit?" I asked my wife. 

"Yes," she said rather absent-mindedly, "I sent it to the dry cleaner.
Why do you ask?" 

Then, with a little smirk dancing on her face, she asked, "You weren't
looking for $20, were you?" 

The only thing I hope is that I do not remember where the $20 came from
or what I planned to do with it. I guess a freshly dry-cleaned suit is 
worth $20. 

Seeking that money reminded me of a verse of Scripture. "But seek ye
first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things 
shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for 
the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto 
the day is the evil thereof." (Matthew 6:33-34 KJV). 

Then another verse. "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye
upon him while he is near:" (Isaiah 55:6 KJV). 

No matter how hard you search for something, if it is not there, you
will never find it. With God, it is a different story. When we truly 
seek Him, we always find Him.
