The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field which someone has found, he hides it again, goes off happy, sells everything he owns and buys the field. Mt 13:44-45
One of the things I like about parables is that they can be understood in different ways. They are like windows on the truth. I personally understood the treasure to be Jesus who we find in the sometimes muddy field of the Church. Jesus is the treasure of our lives.
But a friend shared that she thinks she is the field where God has found some treasure, and so he buys the field. God sees that although we might look like a mudy field, there is treasure hidden somewhere in our heart.
I have to say I like both of these interpretations.
