Jesus made a very telling observation in Matthew 6:21; “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” We will never treasure something unless we know its value. As I have observed people throughout my life, I quickly realize that many people have little idea of the value of items they either throw away or keep in some pile. This is also true of junk. Often people keep or hoard items that are totally useless.
Jesus gives two illustrations of persons who carefully considered what was of extremely great value; ““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. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it” (Matthew 13:44–46).
What do you really treasure that has the highest value possible? It must be Jesus and the gospel!
