The Kingdom of God is like a treasure hidden in a field. At every turn the field is piled high with disappointments, financial meltdowns, broken lives, discarded dreams, abandoned homes, and good-intentioned disasters. We pray for God to wipe the mess away, but he doesn't work that way. He begins there in the dump, with the mess, and reveals a treasure. He creates an unexpected wonder, something beyond imagination. He fashions "new life" in the middle of the mess.
