The Gospel of Matthew, Day 37

Day 37 June 9
Reading: Matthew 13:44-52 NIV



44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
 45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.
 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
 47 "Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish. 48 When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets but threw the bad away. 49 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous 50 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
51 "Have you understood all these things?" Jesus asked. "Yes," they replied.
52 He said to them, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old."

 
Discussion: In the parable of the hidden treasure, the treasure represents God’s Kingdom. This parable reveals the willingness of the merchant to sacrifice everything he had to buy the field that possessed the treasure. How does this relate to God and this world?
