“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. (Matthew 13:44 NKJV)
When you find real treasure, you fight for it. You pursue it with everything you have. You gladly give all to keep it. It is not a burdensome task. It is the delight and the joy of your heart. When you realize the worth of something, there is no price. It is the same with God. Reckless abandonment and wholehearted surrender is the only response there is. Anyone at all who has truly encountered His person will tell you the same.
A fool I may seem in the eyes of the world, but I’ve found my treasure. I’ve found the delight of my heart and the love of my life. I’ve never known such beauty and I don’t want to look anywhere else. I don’t have to. He is the culmination of my every longing and in Him I find the fulfillment of every desire I’ve ever had.
He is the treasure I stand for and fight for. And just like that man in the field, He is the treasure I would give anything for.
