The Kingdom of Heaven is like… Part Four

Matthew 13:44 (ESV)
44  “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

Jesus holds up a vision of a kingdom that is our greatest treasure.  To have the kingdom is to have the JOY of having everything that really matters.  Paul echos a similar idea in Philippians 3.  He threw aside all of his other treasures for the sake of knowing Jesus.  The king is THE treasure of the kingdom — not a castle, territory or riches.

Are you leading where your joy is HIS kingdom?  Do leaders make a mistake if they seek to USE His kingdom to build their own kingdom?

This week how can you encourage people to discover the JOY of giving all for the Kingdom?
