Reflection:
It may seem that we happen upon the kingdom of heaven, mere birth or by chance -- like the treasure buried in the field.
Still, it requires discernment on our part.
¢ Can we appreciate what a treasure we have come upon?
¢ Are we willing to accept it in joy and make the sacrifices in our lives to retain it?

So we ask ourselves:
In my daily life,
How do I experience the treasure that is the kingdom of heaven?
What sacrifice is that treasure now asking of me?
