"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it, he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." Matthew 13:44
In today's verse, Jesus uses the illustration of treasure, hidden in a field.
He speaks about a man finding this treasure, and hiding it.
Then the man goes and sells all that he has, in order to possess the field, so that the treasure can be his.
Some questions come to mind:
In the story, what does the treasure represent?
Why does he find it, then hide it?
Why does the man experience joy over it?
What does Jesus mean by saying "he sells all that he has"?
Something of importance is being taught by Jesus in this story. I leave you to think about these questions, as they relate to the kingdom of heaven.
