People have always loved a treasure hunt. In Jesus' day, the idea of finding treasure was just as alluring. In his parable about treasure hidden in a field, Jesus used the metaphor of treasure to describe the kingdom of heaven. Contrary to his listeners' expectations, he didn't say people had to work hard to gain such treasure. They only had to discover it, and claim it. God's grace--the ultimate treasure--is free and available to us all.
