In Matthew 13 Jesus tells the story of a man who finds 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. That parable is the theme for this series – The Treasure Principle. All the man had BEFORE he discovered the treasure was now expendable when compared to the treasure.
In the parable – the treasure represents the kingdom of God…coming into the Kingdom of God is a radically life altering experience. Finding the TREASURE transforms the VALUE of EVERYTHING ELSE in the man’s life. The same should be true for us – Everything Else in our life experiences a sudden value shift when compared to the Treasure we have found in Christ.
