Like a Treasure Hidden in a Field

The treasure the gospel is referring to is our faith which tells us we are heirs to the kingdom of God. It is important and valuable that everybody must give it absolute priority. At the end of the day nothing else matters because worldly values are destined to faint into insignificance. Our search should not be superficial happiness but to develop a good relationship with God. Such a treasure can be found in ordinary places.

God is constantly speaking to us in the simplicity of our lives. What we've got to do is to open our eyes to His presence and search for Him in the bits and pieces of everyday happenings. This will only come about with prayer and by taking a good look at ourselves and trying to discover what God is saying to us at any given moment. We can stumble across the treasure, even in such time of crisis with everything falling apart. It may be a call to new growth and adventure in holiness. It's a day to reflect on the depth and the value we put on our faith in Christ.

Please do stay safe and keep smiling.
