Tuesday Lectionary Leanings: Treasure Hunt
This coming Sunday's lessons can be found here .
I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I had
To find you I'd suffer anything and be glad
I'd pay any price just to get you
I'd work all my life and I will
To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed
I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had -- The Who
What's your idea of a priceless treasure? The perfect life partner? A discerning mind and listening heart? Or maybe it's the Reign of God as described by Jesus -- a treasure often hidden in that which seems humble and insignificant, but that, in the words of Paul makes us, despite our weaknesses and hardships, "more than conquerers"?
Great lectionary texts this week, people -- let's discuss!
