It's the stuff of legends and stories. A young man devotes his entire life to traveling the world. He spends every day searching high and low for something he believes exists but can't prove. And just when he's about to give up, he finds it. The most beautiful treasure, the greatest and most valuable object he's ever seen. Kids dream of it, adults wish that they could have done it.
This is the kind of story that Jesus presents in Matthew's Gospel. But, we are told that it is not gold or silver that is the greatest treasure. Instead, Jesus tells us that The Kingdom of heaven is the greatest treasure. He tells us that this treasure is worth more than anything
