When the joy outweighs the cost

"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."
Matthew 13:44-46

Some things are worth giving up anything and everything in order to gain...and there is no sorrow in the sacrifice because the reward is so great. That is what it is like to know Christ. And that is what adoption is like, too.
