Matthew 13:44

Jesus moves away from the communal struggle with empire to the personal relationship of individual citizenship in the kingdom of God. Here, the kingdom is like a treasure -- something to be searched for, sacrificed for, and cherished. 

Have you searched for the kingdom? Have you found it? When found, what is its value to you? What are you willing to sacrifice for it? Is this sacrifice an easy choice to make?
