God's Treasure of Love

44"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.
45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. (Matthew 13:44-4)
Seeking for hidden treasure has fascinated people for many centuries.
When banks were unknown, people buried their valuables in the earth.
It is surprising that the greatest of all possibilities has no attraction for most of earth's residents. God's treasure of love is fabulous,but we fail to recognize.
Let's face it, earths treasure (money, power, prestige etc) only satisfies us for a short period of time, it runs out, and then we look for more treasure. We do not recognize the treasure that greets us in the morning as we rise, and is with us when we sleep. If we feel God's love, there is nothing that we need. God's love is bountiful, it never runs out, so we do not have to go out and look for more. God's there with us always, but we must be aware of what a treasure that is.

Peace and love,


"Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me". (Luke 9:23)
