Have you ever longed for a life without fear? Because of our relationship with God, we can live a life completely without fear.
So do not fear, for I am with you;do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you;I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 11 "All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. 12 Though you search for your enemies,you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. 13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:10-13)

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:1-2)

11 He said, "Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence. 13 When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. Then there came a voice to him that said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" (1 Kings 19:11-13)

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field in which a man found." ~Matthew 13: 44.
There are some things in life you cannot put a price on, things that are ours for which we may take for granted, things like beauty, health, family, art, a sound mind....That is exactly the point of the parable found in Matthew 13: 44-52. These are blessings! They are gifts that make the heart sing! Yet we sometimes overlook them. The parable is about the Kingdom of God which is present, which offers a very special relationship with God, and which is a pale reflection of God's eternal kingdom in the life that is to come. The importance of the parable is that if we miss the kingdom, we miss everything.
