Matthew 13:44-46

Spend time in prayer and silence with God asking Him to meet with you and speak to you.

Bible Reading

“The kingdom of heaven is like a 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.”

– Matthew 13:44-46


Here’s another pair of twins. In the case of these twins, the idea is simple to grasp. In both parables, a man finds something of incredible value, and then he finds a way to purchase it for himself. Jesus was saying that the kingdom of heaven is the most valuable thing on earth. A person who discovers the value of the kingdom of heaven will consider his/her relationship to Jesus as the most important thing in the world. There is simply nothing that can compare to having a relationship with the King of heaven.

The Big Question

Is your relationship with Jesus the single most important thing in your life? Is there anything that you are placing above Jesus? Is His work in this world of supreme importance to you?

Conclude your time in prayer and silence, reflecting on what God revealed to you today.
