“Sells All He Has”
Help us, O Lord, to stay in deep touch with the deep joy that is ours for having found you.
And help us, O Lord, to live in deep awareness of the priceless nature of being known by you and knowing you.
And help us, O Lord, to remain constantly aware of the great value of being in your kingdom, a value so great that we would give up anything and everything—even and especially ourselves—for its sake.
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; 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; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.” (Matthew 13:44-45)
