He Sold Everything

When I walked into the room, I started noticing the decorations immediately.

As I looked up toward the ceiling, I saw two trunks on a shelf.

I wonder what was inside them?

Trunks and chests are for safe keeping.

Items that are important are stored in such special places.

If you owned a trunk or chest, what sort of things would you place there?

What would be valuable to you?

Jesus told the story of a man who had discovered something of great worth–a treasure–in a field.

Upon doing so, he sold everything that he had in order to buy the field so he could own the treasure.

Whatever it was, it was worth more to the man than anything he currently had.

When we learn of God’s gift of salvation, we have a choice to make.

We can accept His gift and leave our old way of life behind or we can leave the gift that is offered and walk away.

It’s about what we value.

What means more?

Jesus, or…….

something else?

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field—and get the treasure, too!

—Matthew 13:44
