44 “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.
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
The Kingdom of Heaven is like this, Jesus said. Once you discover it… once you find it, you sell everything you have to possess it! Is there anything in this world that I would exchange for the Kingdom of Heaven in my life?
Lord Jesus, this relationship that I have with You is the most important, most valuable aspect of my life. Thank You for pursuing me and providing the way for me! Help me to practically live with this perspective today. Allow no thing to creep up my priority list to rival You. Those are idols and I will cast each one down! Nothing will rival You.
Give me opportunities today to tell of this great treasure – the power and blessing of Your Kingdom here on earth and for the promise of eternity with You!
