Reading: Matthew 13:44-46
“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.”
Lord, please remind me every day of the value of your kingdom; that everything else pales in comparison to the abundant life that You have planned for me.
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
Thank you, God because you made me in your likeness. When you beheld everything that You made, You saw that they were very good. Thank you, Father that when doubt and distrust and selfish desires entered my heart, You sent your Son to take my place of punishment. Thank you, Jesus for redeeming me with your life. Thank you for restoring me.
