We’re in the midst of looking at some of the most important words ever uttered on this planet: a series of parables in which Jesus reveals the secrets of God’s Kingdom.
Here’s today’s parable pair:
“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.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
God’s kingdom is like a hidden treasure or prized pearl. When you find it, you joyfully abandon everything else for it.
Is that your attitude?
If not, why not?
