Matthew 13, 44-46:
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field: whoever finds it hides it again, and, full of joy, goes and sells all that he has and buys the field…. The Kingdom of Heaven is also like a merchant in fine pearls who, finding one of great value, goes and sells all he has and buys it”.
For those who really meet Jesus, life is transformed.
And what is more: our life is not transformed if we do not really meet Jesus.
Like the merchant in fine pearls or the one who finds the treasure in today’s gospel.
They both discover that it is worth selling everything to get the pearl or the field where the treasure is. Work to meet Jesus.
Work to let yourself be found by Jesus.
Work to find the true treasure that is Jesus.
Your faith is not about following rules, worshipping or mentally following a creed.
Let your faith be grounded in your personal and joyful encounter with Jesus.
