Five Minute Friday : HIDDEN

Five Minute Friday : HIDDEN

Today I’m writing along with many bloggers at Five Minute Friday on the topic HIDDEN. We write for 5 minutes on a given topic, no edits.


 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Matthew 13:44

Though this might be one of the smallest parable, the amount of depth in this one verse is immense! People in that time had the practice of hiding treasures in their field, which was considered very safe. This man found it probably while he was working the field, and knew the worth of it. So he hid it and came back to legally claim it. He sold all that he had to attain this treasure.

Notice the word, and for JOY over it. He was filled with joy, the treasure gave him JOY, joy worth selling all that he had. Jesus likens this treasure to the Kingdom of heaven. How much joy should the kingdom of God give us in light of this parable? Joy worth losing all that we have for His kingdom. The things of earth should fade in comparison to what this hidden treasure holds for us. God’s kingdom and His word and His business should be our business.

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
