Read Proverbs 3:13-18 with Matthew 13:44-46
These two parables of the hidden treasure and pearl of great price, draw the issues of the kingdom of heaven to a very personal level. They beg the questions of "How precious is Christ to your soul?" and "Have you laid hold of the great treasure of the kingdom of heaven?" Jesus already spoke of "sons of the kingdom" being cast out for not embracing the treasure - Jesus Christ [Matthew 8:12]; have you believe in Jesus, the Lord and Saviour? Remember, many are called, but few are chosen.
