Your Hidden Treasure
Jesus combines two pictures again, a hidden treasure and the finest pearl. In each case, the seeker finds what is of unsurpassed value. He sells everything else he owns so that he might possess this single reward.
The kingdom of heaven is just like this. It costs you everything you have. You cannot possess it without letting go of all the other stuff. Yet it is of unequaled value-worth all the sacrifice that is required to obtain it.
Nothing is more important that seizing the kingdom!
