‘Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also’.

These encouraging words are from today’s Gospel reading. They free us from fear, and also remind us that our treasure is in heaven and will not fail us. May we take confidence in this, and may our heart indeed be where that treasure is. May God bless you this day.
