It works both ways

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough to money to buy the field. Matt. 13:44
I’ve always understood this parable to mean that belonging to the Kingdom of Heaven is worth whatever sacrifice we have to make. But looking at it another way, Jesus paid the ultimate price in order to establish His Kingdom. That would make us the exciting and valuable treasure to Jesus. It works both ways.
Lord, I am awed to be so dearly loved and highly valued by You.
