Again, The Kingdom of Heaven is Like

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

What is of the greatest value to you? A person? Place? Thing?

Wouldn’t a life that includes love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control be worth something great? Being humble, yet a strong leader? Gentle, yet strong in the face of adversity?

Leaving a life of anger and agitation for a life of calm is worth many times more than the price of a meditation habit to obtain it. Or putting aside a life of ego to let others shine?

Such is the kingdom of heaven.
