When you think of treasure, what comes to mind? Treasure maps marked with an X? How about a chest of gold coins and precious gems, valuable jewelry, family heirlooms, a fat retirement account, large stocks and bonds? The truth is there is a treasure that is worth so much more than all of the things we could imagine in a treasure chest, and it’s available to everyone willing to accept it.
This ultimate treasure is found in God’s Kingdom, and Jesus’ life, death and resurrection opens the door to all of it. Today, we begin a series called “Kingdom Treasure” where we will uncover the Kingdom treasures that can change our lives forever.
Today, we are going to take a look at one more Kingdom treasure that helps us experience the full life of God.
The scripture we’re looking at today has a lot to do with planting and growing. Our next Kingdom treasure is found in two parables that Jesus teaches again to a large crowd that gathered around Him.
There is treasure here if we will open our eyes to see it. We will see God move in powerful ways when we look for Him in the little things. There is nothing that is impossible in the Kingdom of God.
When we come to truly realize the sacrifice made for us we trade the temporal for the eternal, the earthly things for the divine, and the perishable for the imperishable.
