Some family members were cleaning out their grandfather’s attic earlier this year in Defiance, Ohio, when they discovered a valuable collection of old baseball cards. This find has been called one of the most exciting discoveries in sports card history. Some of the cards were sold at auction for $566,132. The cards and money will be evenly distributed between 20 cousins in the family.
Not every family has such a treasure hidden in the attic, but everyone has access to something much more valuable. We have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and, through our faith in him, become part of his kingdom! Let us all treasure this valuable prize and appreciate its great worth!
“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.” Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”—Matthew 13:44-46.
