In the Gospel, Jesus talks today about storing up not treasures of wealth to be enjoyed by us in our lifetime, but rather treasures that are honored by God. What sort of treasures could those be?
Perhaps the answer can be found in today’s first reading from Romans where Paul tells us that it was the faith of Abraham, and not his works, that were credited to him as righteousness. It is our faith that God loved us so much that he gave his Son so that we might have eternal life that makes us worthy and righteous in his sight. That faith is the wealth that we must store up, not the perishable possessions and fleeting pleasures of the world.
Are we ready to shift our paradigm and live by faith? Even when we realize that doing so will most certainly take us out of our comfort zone?
