17th Week in Ordinary Time 2020
King Solomon asked for the gift of wisdom. Jesus describes this wisdom in terms of a treasure for which one is prepared to give up everything else. This treasure is the kingdom of God – the presence and reign of God in the world which gives shape and direction to our lives. In calling us to follow him Jesus gives us entry into this kingdom. If we are truly wise we will be prepared to sacrifice everything in order to be part of God’s kingdom.
