The greatest treasure Jesus offers is relationship. The opportunity to mingle with the Creator of the Universe. It begins with hearing his voice and opening the door. For He is always inviting. And His invitation is to share bread together.
When we sit and break bread together, we share in the necessity of life. Hunger reminds us of our dependency on food to survive. Sharing a meal reminds us that we need one another. Intimacy develops around the table. There is something about sharing a meal that leads to personal connection. Fellowship and sharing of lives is inevitable around the dinner table.
This is the true nature of riches in the Kingdom of God. A seat at his table. Listening to His voice. Absorbing His wisdom. Altering our perspective to live in His ways.
Jesus offers us the most valuable thing conceivable. A relationship with God. To sit and share stories. To laugh and cry and be with one another. To hear and receive wisdom and insights – insights that turn into treasure.
There is no greater treasure than Jesus at the table. To glean his perspective. All we need to do is hear his voice. He is calling. He desires to give us the riches of the Kingdom. It begins with opening the door and letting him pass the potatoes.
