Old Treasures can still have something to offer us, though even when it seems like the 'old ways' have been pretty well worked over or nibbled to the ground. Old treasures may even sometimes feel like they are just a pile of old rocks, but if you look around, there is new growth on the edges.
New treasures can be frightening because they involve change--changes to our way of thinking and acting. New treasures can challenge us with new opportunities and growth, too. New treasures are exciting and unknown at the same time. They can be eagerly anticipated, yet be a little fear-filled.
We probably don't want to throw out the old treasures, just because they may be old. And we don't always need to embrace new treasures, just because they are new. But God may very well be calling us to try new ways or look at the old treasures in a new way. After all God is always challenging us to grow and that will mean changes!
