The Hidden Treasure and the Pearl

Matthew 13:44-46, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it”.

The kingdom of heaven is of inestimable value. This treasure represents Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers and once the man found the prize, he willingly gave up everything to possess it because what he attained in exchange was so much more valuable than it is comparable to trading an ounce of trash for a ton of diamonds.
