By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Whoever has ears, let them hear.
"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field."
Heaven evokes a response!
Putting oneself completely - forward!
Investment of all one has!
Shining with Joy!
Why would Jesus say a field...
Vigil in Aurora, Colorado 2012
Angelic shape appeared in the clouds above Sunday’s prayer vigil for the victims of the “Dark Knight” massacre.Crystal Fuller says she sees the holy shape in a photo she took of the sky above the site after the service was over.
“I noticed it afterwards. I had it posted and … one of my friends, Barbara Masias, said, "It's an angel and I saw it!" Fuller wrote. Fuller said the shape of the angel appeared directly above the Century 16 theater complex in Aurora, Colo., where crazed gunman had acted. Thousands attended the candlelight vigil at the Aurora Municipal Center Sunday evening, a day of prayer and remembrance for the 70 involved in the massacre.
Be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
25 Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil. 28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Jesus told us to rely upon our Father, mentioning another field.
22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
Lilies grown in Israel.
The apostle Matthew spent three years with Jesus and he wrote, "Jesus came, enjoying life" (Matthew 11:19 Eating and drinking with friends He defended).
Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
1 Corinthians 10:26
The earth and all that is in it belong to the Lord!
