Matthew 13:44

Our kids have small geodes in their rooms.  As I picked one of them up, I rolled it between my fingers to watch the sparkling interior.  I briefly viewed the dull exterior.  It’s surprising that it’s the same rock.

When Jesus was on Earth, He told the parable of hidden treasure.  He compared heaven to hidden treasure.

I think geodes are like hidden treasure.  The outer appearance of a geode looks drab, but if you grab a hammer and a chisel and carefully break it open, you will discover hidden, glittering crystals inside.  So, it seems to me that God made a tangible parable when He created geodes long ago.
