Mary Grams, of Alberta, Canada, feared that her ring was gone forever when she lost it 13 years ago. Grams, now 84, lost her engagement ring while she was pulling weeds at her family farm in 2004. One can only imagine the frustration that would go along with the loss of such a valuable possession.
Against all odds, Grams found her ring when she pulled up a carrot from her garden and found the ring “growing” around the carrot! A celebration no doubt followed this amazing find.
The salvation that we have in Jesus is compared to finding a valuable treasure. Once we find it, we celebrate joyfully, and we hang onto it for dear life!
“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.
