Valued Possession

In Reed, North Carolina you will find the Reed gold mine. It was first excavated in 1799 when Conrad Reed discovered a strange rock on the Reed farm. In 1802, a jeweler in Fayetteville offered Reed $3.50 for the rock. It turned out that the rock was gold and was actually worth $3,600. Do you know what Reed did with that rock for three years? He used it as a doorstop at his house!

How often are we oblivious to the true value of things?

“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
