I leisurely got off the train. The sun greeted me and I was looking forward to my workday. Oh no, I forgot my smartphone on the train! It would be unthinkable if all my personal data, appointments, contacts and pictures would be lost! I did everything to get it back. It was so wonderful that I could claim it at the lost and found!
Jesus encourages us to look for God eagerly. The kingdom of God is compared to a treasure and an expensive pearl for which it is worth it to let go of everything else. A personal relationship with God is not just given to us – do you want it?
What does it mean to you to be on good terms with God, to be accepted by him and to trust his lead? What would happen if this relationship would be taken from you? How would you react?
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Try and see what is more important to you: smartphone, credit card and keys – or a clear conscience before God?
