Matthew 13:44-46

Jesus is reminding us that people who faithfully dedicate themselves to their vocation, their everyday duties, and responsibilities discover life’s true treasures. We keep thinking that the real treasure is out there somewhere, and if we were not confined to this boring life and if we were not saddled with these family or community responsibilities, then we could be free to go look for that treasure, the kingdom. It is right here, right now.
