Discoveries are being made almost daily in our world. New medicines. New technologies. New stars and planets. New ways to do things with more efficiency and precision. New truths and new ideas. Our society loves to discover new things.

It’s a joy to find a lost earring or a lost twenty-dollar bill. In addition, there is something wonderful about recovering an old friendship or noticing something in the Bible that we never noticed before.
