Parable of the Treasure hidden in a field

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.(Matthew 13:44)

The kingdom of heaven is a very great treasure. It’s greater than all the kingdoms and empires of the world. This is because God is seated on the throne of the kingdom and his kingdom is everlasting. Many kingdom have risen and fallen but God’s kingdom has and will remain eternal. There’s love, joy, peace and holiness in the Lord’s kingdom.

Happy are those who seek the kingdom of heaven above all earthly riches. For these know that the riches of the earth cannot exceed that of the kingdom of heaven in which no one lacks at the throne of God. What great a kingdom that Jesus Christ the Son of God had made us the children of God, can anyone else even compare? How great is the Lord God that he created the birds of air, the beasts of the field and the living things of the world by his Word?

Chase not after the vain things of the world which will hold no value in the afterlife. Any riches that lead to you sinning more to obtain such riches should be rejected as they will only increase your punishment in hell. Therefore treasure the kingdom of God more than anything else, so that you act worthily in sight of the God of hosts.

Parable of the Leaven (Kingdom of God parable)

Luke 13:20-21 says; And again he said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.”

Again the Lord Jesus gives an explanation about the Kingdom of God. Here the emphasis is on its overcoming nature. Even though the leaven was hid in three measures of flour it ended up leavening the entire flour. Thought the flour was more in quantity it couldn’t stop the leaven from doing it’s work. Leaven doesn’t work in an instant but it does work eventually. We are called to be patient therefore.

So we can realize, that the Kingdom of God influences everything eventually. It will end up shaking the established order of chaos and confusion that the world is in.

But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:13-14)
