What would you do if you found a million dollars hidden in a field?
In today’s lesson, we’re learning about a famous parable that Jesus shared. A parable is just a story that teaches an important lesson in a creative way. In this parable, Jesus was talking about a hidden treasure. A guy finds a treasure, buries it, goes and sells all of his other belongings, and buys the field where he hid the treasure. Now, I bet everyone was confused by the story. Why would a guy find a treasure and not go and spend it all on cool stuff? And, why did he bury it again and sell all his stuff to buy the field? Well, Jesus was trying to teach bigger lessons to the people. See, the real treasure is Jesus. When we meet Jesus, we have found the real treasure because he offers us forgiveness from sins and new life in him. So, we should be willing to give up everything to have him. And, another lesson we learn from the parable is that we shouldn’t bury Jesus and hide him. We should share him with our friends and family. Jesus is the real treasure so be sure to share him with others!
