My Reflections for Wednesday August 1, Saint Alphonsus Liguori, bishop and doctor Matthew 13:44-46


Gospel:
Jesus said to his disciples: "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.
Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it."

My Reflections:
Jesus depicts His kingdom as treasure and pearl that whoever will find it will give up everything just to have it. Indeed, the kingdom of God is a priceless treasure and pearl that we must all desire very hard to possess. For what it will do us if we have treasures in this world yet we don’t have God in our lives?

The riches of this world are all passing and temporary we will leave it all somewhere along the path of our lives. Whether we like it or not we have to leave everything that we have in this world. So who will remain without end?   The one that will forever be there for us is God; the one that shall bring us to heaven is God. These temporary things that presently surround us will not be able to bring us to our eternal heavenly destination. It’s only through God that we will be able to go to heaven.

In our gospel, the person found the true treasure of life that is Jesus; he willingly gave-up everything just to have Him. The same also with the merchant when he found the true pearl of his life that is Jesus he sold everything in his possessions so that he could possess the greatest pearl that is Jesus. Many saints have done this too, they gave-up everything just to have Jesus. 

Let us not yield Jesus for the temporary and sometimes immoral enjoyment of this world. For what is inside this world is temporary and passing.

But our treasure and pearl that is Jesus will forever be there for us. …
