Listen to Your Heart

Matthew 13:44
“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”

The kingdom of heaven…or as Jesus is sometimes quoted as saying…the kingdom of God…is SO valuable, SO worth experiencing…that it would be well worth selling all that we had if that would attain it! Perhaps if we cut our attachments to possessions, prestige and the desire for power…those three things would cease to be our motivation? Maybe then our motivation would be to love God, love all people and love all things. Then the kingdom of God just might take us by surprise as we discover our true selves.
