The parable of the hidden treasure

Matthew 13:44

13:44 Furthermore, the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which man finds and hides again; and happy about that, he is going to sell everything he has and buy this field.

Reflection:

This parable does not refer to the fact that we can buy the kingdom of God with our money, because it really means that the kingdom of God comes into our lives for free, but it has to be valued more than anything we own. . Jesus said: “And whoever leaves houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, in my name, will receive a hundred times more and will inherit. Of eternal life. 19:29) ”, this places our heart, having our eyes fixed on earthly things, they divert us from heavenly riches, which are eternal. We need to change our mindset regarding the meaning of life with God’s help, because the Scriptures say, “Watch and beware of all covetousness; because man’s life is not in the abundance of the goods he has. “(Luke 12:15),

Our Lord Jesus Christ is our precious treasure, and if we appreciate him for what he means, we will not be as concerned as those who do not know God. The true wealth is God, because where our treasure is, our heart will also be. (Matthew 6:27)
