Where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
In today's Gospel(LK12)Jesus tells his disciples: Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your belongings and give alms.
Jesus does not beat around the bush. If we want to enter the Kingdom we need to get rid of all attachments to worldly wealth and be prepared. Where our hearts are indicates what our treasure is! What am I seeking? Am I willing to pay the price?
Jesus tells us the parable of the servants waiting their master's return. Blessed are those who are prepared and vigilant to welcome him. We do not know the hour when the Son of Man will come.
A wise person lives in the present moment and is ready to live as if each moment may be one's last moment.
