St. Leopold Mandic
Who finds a treasure and then buries it again? Surely you sneak it home and then start spending it right away, right? But Jesus says heaven is like a treasure you find, then bury, and then sell everything you have in order to buy the whole field. Why would anyone do that?
One more thing: Perhaps Jesus is telling us that heaven is unlike any treasure we have ever seen. A treasure so wonderful, that indeed we want to savor it and hold on to it, rather than flit it away with careless desires. Can you even begin to imagine what kind of wonderful place it must be? Am I willing to 'sell my possessions' and empty myself of everything that stands in the way between me and heaven?
Prayer: Lord Jesus, to be with you in heaven must be wonderful beyond my wildest imaginings. Help me to rid my life of anything that stands between me and an eternal life with you. In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Leopold, pray for me.
