Treasure

The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Matthew 13:44

The hunter saw the treasure but he came back and bought the field.

OK.

Wait what?

He had to sell all of his stuff to buy the field. When he found this treasure, he had to bury it again and sell all he had to buy the whole field. There’s something with that treasure which is attuned with the field. It seems he can’t just ask for a treasure hunting permit from the city hall, dig and pull out the treasure and go home and live happily ever after. He had to make the field his home, his own. He saw something in the treasure worth ¬†all his¬†belongings and even beyond as he decided to buy not only the treasure but the whole field.

Look at this angle — this hunter decided to live with the treasure and not the other way around.

When you find the Treasure of treasures, you are encourage to live with him. You are encourage to embrace his church, love his people, share your life with his followers, and serve his children. You just can’t pull him out from his church and go, like a man on an island. Yes, you live for Jesus and with Jesus and Jesus will do the same for you, but he also calls you to live with his disciples and followers.

Look at this another angle — the treasure was buried by his time.

Today, do your best not for the treasure to be buried. Allow people to see Jesus in you. Don’t keep him out of your family’s eyes. Expose him in your workplace. Tell about him in your friend’s party. People are looking for this Treasure. People are hunting for this Treasure. Live your life as if its their shovel so they may discover the Treasure.

Give your all for him, who is your Treasure. And do this out of joy.
