The picture in today's gospel shows us the values of the kingdom of God. Salvation and the richness of God's love are the greatest treasures, but this treasure we generally need to find. It is not difficult. This tells us that this treasure is hidden in each of us and our task is to discover it. So, is it worth it to ask what is the most important treasure in my life? Certainly in our hearts we have many other precious treasures. But, what is the really precious treasure Jesus is asking us about? First of all we must look very deeply into our hearts and life. If we reject all that is only temporary, which is valuable only for a short time not a long time, we should find the "gravity treasure" faith, which is not only a beautiful pearl but the key that unlocks the kingdom of God. But the discovery of this key is the beginning of our adventure. Finding a good pearl not only gives us happiness but an awareness that we must open our eyes in a totally different way in this world, because in comparison with this treasure everything else loses its value. This is why Jesus says today, that in our lives we must opt in the proper way. That we must opt to find which side we are on and when we find this faith we must be sure which side we should take.
The gospel "pearl" becomes the key. Through this key we not only open the gate to heaven for ourselves, but through this key we can also open mankind's hearts. We can make the way which we are going also an opening for others to God and His love.
Did you find this pearl?
So, is this faith really a precious treasure in my life?
