Hidden Treasure

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” (Mat 13:44)

What would you give everything you own for? What value would you prescribe to an object that you would sell absolutely everything you own just to get a hold of?

Jesus talked about the treasure hidden in the field as being like the kingdom of God. It was an analogy described to encourage us to see the real importance associated with the gospel.

Jesus and the message He gave us of salvation and the coming of the kingdom of God are to be valued beyond all we own. Everything we have and all that we are is to be committed to the cause of Christ. The value we prescribe to Him can never be enough; He is beyond the value of creation itself.

Quick Prayer: You are beyond all value. Amen.
