The Parable of the Hidden Treasure
The kingdom of heaven is like 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.
Jesus spoke in parables so we can better understand heavenly concepts by means of earthly descriptions that we can easily relate to.
I understand the meaning of this parable. This man surrenders his life to own this treasure, his salvation.
Have you ever really thought about this parable though? It’s sounds so simple but yet it is really very big and important. Where is your treasure? Is it here on earth? Buried and hidden? Or, is your treasure invested in Heaven?
But let’s take this thought a step further.
When God blesses you with a gift, how far will you take it? Do you simply cover it up and rejoice that you found it? Do you take ownership of gift? Do you invest in it and share with others? Do you buy the whole field. Or, do you just mark the place where it’s buried and unbury it periodically to look at it?
Each one of us has a gift, a talent. What is yours? Once you discover it, don’t bury it. Don’t keep it all to yourself. Sharing that gift is a blessing to both you and its recipient. ♥️
