Red and Grey squirrels continually bury nuts in the winter. They dig holes in the ground, then like treasure, they bury the nuts under soil and leaves to protect it from the attack of birds. Weeks later the squirrel will return, and sniff out the nuts.
The word of God is like a treasure, and God has buried it in the Bible. In it you will find knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, but the meaning is only revealed once you dig into it.
Glimpse over the Bible and you will find nothing but leaves, study the Bible and you will find the nut.
The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
And if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge.
