“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
The mission of 13forty4 is simple: we want to create content that helps people discover God as their greatest Treasure. In our eyes, Matthew 13:44 is a verse that perfectly shows us who God is. God is meant to be everything to us. He is that good, big, glorious, worthy, and satisfying! When God becomes everything, suddenly we do not need anything else. Joyfully, other things start to lose their equity in our lives.
The phrase, “in his joy,” is what makes Matthew 13:44 come to life. Did the man sell everything because he felt like he had to? Did he do it to impress God? No, he did it in his joy. Incredible! This is Christianity! This is how good God is! The man sold everything to buy the field. The Treasure was worth giving up everything else for. You can find the same to be true! Christ alone will satisfy your seeking heart. We want to create resources to help you, and many others, experience this life changing truth.
