Each day, I reflect upon a word or a phrase inspired by the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
Jesus said to his disciples: “The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.” (Matthew 13:44-46)
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: The concept of heaven is unimaginable to the human mind. Knowing this, Jesus occasionally presented comparisons to His disciples – the Kingdom is heaven is like…
Much of Chapter 13 in the Gospel of Matthew is devoted to such comparisons. By presenting these comparisons, Jesus was asking His disciples to reflect upon their priorities. The timelessness of scripture calls us to do the same.
*What would we give up to reach the kingdom of heaven?
*What sacrifices would we be willing to make?
*What value do we place on attaining heaven?
If you want to know what a man values, watch how he spends his time.
