Morning Thought: As you walk through your field of dirt and mud, find your pearl of great price. Life is like a field and the treasure is usually hidden beneath the surface. Dig through the dirt of your troubles until you find the radiant gem that God wants to give you. Once you find it you won’t be able to contain your joy. “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it” (Matthew 13:44-46 NIV).
