Love For Sale

The Single Most Important Thing


Matthew 13:44
New Living Translation (NLT)

Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl

44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.


The Single Most Important Thing

The single most important thing
That we could ever find,
Is not a pile of cash sky high
But a love that’s one of a kind,

A love so sweet and innocent,
It would make you want to cry,
It would not leave you when you’re old
Or ever say goodbye,

It would not use you up
Then leave you high and dry,
It would not forsake your covenant
When things had gone awry,

It would not hold you tight at night
Then vanish at the new day’s sun,
It would not praise you to your face
Then behind your back poke fun,

It would not speak with cruelty
Or in anger raise its hand,
It would always lift you up
And beside you forever stand,

Yes, the single most important thing
Is the treasure found in love,
Be thankful if you find in this life
Since it came down from above.

Father,
In You and from You comes all love. Before You loved, there was no love. We thank You and praise You for loving us so much. May we never lose sight of that love. May it be the guiding light we follow in this life.
