Jesus infers here that understanding is a treasure to aspire for. It sounds like hard work involving reading and study and disciple. Well, yes it does involve all this but there is a joy that comes with it that makes it NOT hard work. That's why it's a joy for me to be spending this Bible study time this morning. The harvest always makes it worth while.
Holy Spirit. Give me understanding that I may be rich soil and produce a harvest worthy of Jesus.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
