The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. (Matthew 13:44)
Jesus often used parables to help people understand deep concepts. The kingdom of heaven, also known as the kingdom of God, was the topic of a number of Jesus' parables. In the parable above, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a treasure hidden in a field. As we see in the parable, a man finds a hidden treasure, covers it up, and joyfully sells everything he has to buy the field and obtain the treasure.
But why did the man sell everything he had? Because the treasure in the field was worth it. Just as the treasure was worth it for the man, the kingdom of heaven, God's kingdom, is of far greater worth than everything in this life.
Join me tomorrow as we look at why the kingdom of God is of greater than anything in this life.
