"하늘나라는 밭에 숨겨진 보물과 같다. 어떤 사람이 그것을 발견하고는 감추어 두고 기뻐하며 돌아가 모든 재산을 팔아서 그 밭을 산다."(마태복음 13장 44절 말씀)

"So God said to him, "Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. " (1 Kings: 11-12)
