THE DEEP END
• Treasures, Pearls and Suspended Coffees
I recently wandered into a café in Dublin that was selling ‘suspended coffees’. This is where you buy a coffee and then buy another one ‘suspended’. Then someone who can’t afford to buy a hot beverage can come in and ask for a ‘suspended coffee/tea’. It reminded me of one of today’s parables, the treasure in the field. It gave me a tiny glimpse of what the world looks like when we take this Kingdom of God stuff seriously. It brings great joy, especially when it is unexpected. Sometimes there are hidden treasures of God’s kingdom going on right under our noses (remember the mustard seed revolution parable from last week?). Over the last few Sundays we have heard Matthew 13 and the parables on the growth and development of God’s Kingdom. Today we are told what to do when we find it. It may be unexpected; it may be the result of a long search and journey, but once found, nothing else matters.
We are driven by our desires. It is what we desire most that effects what we do and the choices we make in life. In both parables, the finder responds wholeheartedly and in complete surrender. We should ask for the ability to make the radical decision for the treasure. Jesus tells us that there is only one thing worth pursuing at any cost – that is the Kingdom of God. And joy is one proof of its presence. (Find your nearest suspended coffee: www.suspendedcoffees.com.)
