Are you willing to sell everything in order to possess that true treasure we have in Jesus?
Three points of the Homily:
1. Jesus is the hidden treasure and the pearl of great price.
"I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ" - Philippians 3:8
2. We need to imitate Solomon and ask for wisdom from God.
Wisdom is much more than knowing a lot of things or having prestigious university degrees. Having wisdom is more than being just a morally very good person. Wisdome gives us insight in to what is truly important in life, an awareness of the meaning and purpose of life, o what really matters. It is an understanding of where our happiness lies. Wisdom is having an understing and discerning mind.
3. We need wisdom to discern what is true treasures from false treasures being presented to us by society, media, culture and people.
