"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field;
the which when a man hath found, he hideth,
and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath,
and buyeth that field."
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal"
Our works are like the ratted old withered husks. Inside, if we have trusted Christ alone, there lies something precious—the hidden treasure of the heart. He gives us a new heart and a new beginning. Our value is above that of the most prized jewels this earth has to offer. The works will be torn away (our flesh), and burned. All that remains is the righteousness of Christ. And just like the farmer prizes his corn, our Father in heaven is glorified when he sees us trusting in Him. And each seed that He produced, each in it's unique gleaming luster, can be planted and yield a hundred fold. Just think, you are a hidden treasure in Christ!
