Jesus said to his disciples: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.”
A treasure that we all long for and when we find it here on earth will do anything to assure we are there for eternity! Heaven is worth whatever price we have to pay. Once we make that decision, we realize it is a small price to pay. What are you willing to give up for heaven?
Prayer: Heavenly Father spending eternity with you is all I want. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
God is my refuge on the day of distress.
