The kingdom of heaven is like a man in search of a good woman to make his wife. When he finds her, he gives up all other potential prospects and asks her to marry him.
The kingdom of heaven is like a job you have always wanted. When the opportunity comes, you do everything in your power to get that job.
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us, "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field" (13:44). Again He says, "The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it" (13:45-46).
The kingdom of heaven is something that once discovered on the path of life, we immensely desire and yearn to give up everything for it, and do everything in our power to run after it.
It is something we are all meant to find.
Have you found it yet?
