Our world thinks in terms of give and TAKE. God’s kingdom is one of give and be given to.
Jesus speaks about what we have been given, how to protect that from being despised or wasted, and how to open ourselves to all that God has to give us.
What does it mean that the kingdom of God is “holy” and a “pearl” (in fact, THE pearl of great price)?
What does it mean to ask, seek, and knock in our relationship with God?
