Matthew 13:44 – “The kingdom of heaven is like a 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.


The kingdom of heaven is valuable and to be protected.  You have to seek to find the kingdom of heaven.  When you find the kingdom of heaven there is great joy and you realize that it is worthy of everything you have.


I have to seek Jesus and know that the kingdom may not be as recognizable to some as others initially.   When I see Jesus as the Son of God and what he has done to redeem me, this has to be the most valuable thing ever.  Upon receiving Jesus as Lord and savior, there is unmet joy that can’t be matched by earthly desires that leave the heart empty.  The value of the kingdom of heaven is so much greater than anything else I must be mindful to put my relationship with the Father first and devote my life to the glory of God.    



Thank you for your love and grace in sending Jesus to redeem me so I can have a relationship with you.  Help your spirit fill me with joy to live a life devoted to you.  Let me share that joy with others who are yet to know you.
