Pentecost 11; Proper 12

How precious are you in the sight of God? How about a treasure that He hides in a field to keep you safe and then sells everything to buy the field?

Or how about he compare you to a fine pearl that He is willing to sell everything to acquire you?

It may sound strange but that is how our heavenly Father views all of you. Jesus told these parables in Matthew 13 to show us that God is willing to give everything so that He may have you. Everything, that is, His own dear Son to pay for you, so that you may be in His kingdom forever.

Don’t feel that precious or valuable? Look at yourself through the fountain of the blood of the Son of God and see the reflection of your Savior.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
