What in your life is really worth having? I mean, really worth having?
We spend our time on lots of things. So are very important. Some, not so much. In our lives we only have so much time, so much money, so much energy, so much effort.
Today, in your life, are you spending these precious resources on what matters the most?
Are you spending it on things worth really having?
Listen to what Jesus says today in Matthew 13:44-46:
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
The kingdom of heaven is life that is found in Jesus. It’s not just heaven, though that is part of it. It’s the life that is found in one’s daily walk with Him. That life that makes everything better. That life is that is truly worth having, over everything else in life.
And see, that’s it. This kingdom life, this life that’s found in Jesus, that’s worth having. That’s eternal, unending, and joyous. That’s the best and that’s what it’s all about.
And today, Jesus said that should come first and be first. And we should get rid of everything else and keep that.
Because when we’ve got that, we’ve got something truly worth having.
Today, may we remember in our lives what is truly worth having. Faith. Family. Friendships. And let’s focus on that.
Let’s focus on what really matters. And in that, we will find life!
