A couple in Northern California made a remarkable discovery recently while walking their dog on their property. They found a stash of gold coins that had been buried under an old tree. The coins are dated from 1847 to 1894, and are in excellent condition. While their face value is a mere $27,000, experts say that the collection could be worth as much as $10 million!
This reminds us of a story Jesus told: “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.”—Matthew 13:44.
The treasure found by the California couple should last them a lifetime.
The treasure of the kingdom of heaven will last for eternity!
