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. (Matt. 13:44)
The reason I follow Jesus is simple. He is beautiful. The Kingdom surpasses anything else I can find as a treasure. He is worth all.
There is a cost to following Jesus. There is a cost to NOT following Jesus. We need to weigh each out. And the cost is so worth the treasure that is Christ. Nothing compares.
