    A SHARE IN GODS KINGDOM Today concludes a three-week series of Gospel texts in which we have listened to a total of seven parables about the kingdom. The believer is asked to consider the request that God made of Solomon in todays first reading: Ask something of me and I will give it to you (1 Kings 3:5). Todays parables about the treasure buried in the field and the pearl of great price should prompt us to answer, A share in your kingdom, O God! Today we discover that the kingdom of God is beyond value, a priceless treasure. Unfortunately, our culture bombards us with things that it believes are priceless treasuresthe bigger and better SUVs, anti-aging and anti-balding creams and salves, miracle diets, and so much more. Having a share in Gods kingdom and helping to bring about that kingdom are the greatest treasures that we can ever hope to gain. Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.
