There is an inner place in each of us, which is like a great treasure hidden in the field of our soul that is waiting to be discovered. When we find this inner treasure, and recognize its value, we will happily give up all other goals and ambitions to make it real in our lives. We want to possess it and have it possess us.
This is undoubtedly much of the frustration and despair of many, trying to find the treasure in the field and then trying to buy the field. It is really the discovery of our self-worth and value to the Father. We are valuable. We are treasure. We are pearls.
“The Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went out and sold all he had, and bought it.” Jesus
