Kingdom Treasure - Matthew 13:44

Matthew 13:44 -- "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field."

Imagine you went into your backyard and found a precious stone. Wouldn't that be amazing. What if there was something more precious and higher in value than that? Would you want it? Of course you would.

Jesus said that the value of being part of God's Kingdom is like treasure. Finding Jesus is more precious than any stone and more valuable than anything on this earth. When we put our faith in Christ, God grants us forgiveness for any and all of our sins. We can then grown and learn in His Word to find joy and peace as a member of His eternal kingdom.

The best part is that the treasure of God's Kingdom is not depleted when shared. Instead, it increases! God's Kingdom is a treasure that is meant to be shared.
