The Hidden Treasure of The Family

"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" (Matt.13:44).

The kingdom of heaven is a treasure because of its value. We have to discover that value, protect and cherish it. This treasure is found in our family, our immediate kingdom.

Our journey to the heavenly treasure begins from the home, the family, our immediate treasure. It is a pity that sometimes we take our family for granted. We trivialize the family treasure. We neglect and ignore it. We jeopardize the peace, love, sincerity, friendship, which holds family bond together. Charity, for sure, begins at home. So the heavenly treasure is tasted in the peace, love and joy in the family treasure.

Why not recognize this treasure in your family today. Why not work for this treasure. Your parents, brothers and sisters are the greatest treasure you can imagine. But you have to discover in them the treasures of God's goodness. You don't have to take them for granted. Appreciate them.

Is your family wounded or troubled? It can still receive healing and restoration. But you have to work for it. Invest in seeking out your family treasure and cherishing it. That hidden treasure is God. He dwells in the family that makes him the center of their lives. 

Go get Him!
