Treasure in the Field

The kingdom of heaven is like 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."

I wonder how many times we neglect to truly see the value that God places on us and in us. In this story put of the Book of Matthew there was something of value: a treasure.  It had been hidden but on this day and at this time it was found. The man that found the treasure, hid it again and then went to buy the field the treasure was in. I always wondered "why buy the field when the treasure is all that you want?" What was the field worth?
Consider this: the field had value because of what was in it. Finding the treasure gave the field more meaning and made it enticing to this man. You and I have value because of the treasure that God has placed in us. That treasure is His purpose. Its living the way He designed us to live  only when we find this treasure, we don't hide it, we begin to utilize it. Finding YOUR treasure is like finding a slice of heaven right here and right now.

Today, like this man, you can find your joy. Use your gifts and unlock your potential. Great things are in store for you! Where your treasure is your heart will be also:)
