Matthew 13:44-46 (NIV)
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. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

The Kingdom of God understands value.

Matthew 13:45-46 (NIV)
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

Ephesians 5:25 (ESV)
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

Titus 3:5 (ESV)
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit.
