As you wander through this life, you will stumble across many treasures. Some will be found easily and some will require much effort. Treasures are not placed along life’s path by accident. Treasures are placed on you path on purpose and for a purpose by our Creator and they are intended for our blessing and growth.
I often wonder how many treasures I have missed out on, because I was not paying attention. I missed out because I was not paying attention, or maybe because the treasure did not look like what I think a treasure is supposed to look like.
When you come upon one of God’s treasures and you know it’s one of His treasures, from the very moment of its discovery, your life begins to change. You develop a different focus, dreams and goals. Your whole approach to life changes and so does the way that you live!
Treasure is important because it always carries with it the capacity to change our lives. Matthew 13:44 says: “The Kingdom Of Heaven is like a 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.”
One of the greatest treasures that God has given us is the treasure of a Kingdom Relationship. God does not give us this relationship because we deserve it. God gives us this relationship out of GRACE, in MERCY and through FORGIVENESS! Because God gives it, the Kingdom Relationship should change our lives. It should change who we are, how we live, what we do, where we go and the why of everything.
Don’t waste your Kingdom Relationship! Do whatever it takes to protect it, grow it and share it! Remember: Your relationship with God is a treasure and a treasure should bring blessing!
