At first glance, the message is that the Kingdom of Heaven is really, really valuable.
But again, an important meaning within the parables of Jesus can be found be looking for the “odd” element of the story. The “odd” point these parables share is that the person “goes and sells all that he has” to obtain one valuable thing.
The parables reinforce Christ’s message that we must be ready to give up everything to be His disciples.
Are we ready?
