The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field…like a merchant looking for fine pearls…” [Matthew 13:44-45]

The sound and sweetness of the early morning birds’ song reminds me of the words of the preacher,”If you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God” [Proverbs 2:3-5] This morning sit for a moment and string these pearls of great price and bind them to your heart.

God’s Presence – Jesus said,”If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.  My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”  [John 14:23]

God’s Purity – Jesus said,”If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.  Then come, follow me.” [Matthew 19:21]

God’s Provision – Jesus said,”Give and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap…”  [Luke 6:38]

God’s Peace –Jesus said,”Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”  [John 14:27]

God’s Protection – Jesus said, ”…Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one.”  [John 17:11b]
