Daily Devotional – Found the Most Valuable Treasure!

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Matthew 13: 43b-46. Did you awake this morning on top of the world? With a smile from ear to ear? You may be thinking that I need a reality check! I awoke this morning with joy in my heart and the lightest burden provided by Jesus! I woke up with the biggest smile because I understood the gift that I have received in Jesus!

He who has ears, let him hear.

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy, he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

 

Jesus was questioning his disciples while sharing the parables. He wanted them ( and us) to get a glimpse and slight comprehension of the gift that he has given us. Like the disciples, I’m not sure that we get it. I’m not sure that we truly understand the value of what Jesus has blessed us with through His sacrifice and death on the cross.

The question I leave you with today, What would you give up? What are you bring asked to give up? Would you sell all that you have to buy the gift of Jesus?

Let’s Pray

Dear Almighty God

Forgive me for not valuing You. For not valuing the gift that you have freely given to me. Help me to comprehend the value of your salvation. As I do, show me the value of everything else in comparison to the greatest gift of all! Thank you that I have received the most valuable treasure ever!

In Jesus’ name, Amen
