In these verses from Matthew 13, the Lord teaches about the kingdom of heaven, and compares it to a hidden treasure and a pearl of great price. In these parables the men who find the treasures realize their value, selling all they have to purchase them. Ultimately, the kingdom has its value because of the King, and the true treasure is Christ himself. Is Christ the treasure of our lives? Are our affections fixed on him?
