“The realm of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field,
which someone found and hid;
then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has
and buys that field.
Again, the realm of heaven is like a merchant
in search of fine pearls;
on finding one pearl of great value,
she went and sold all that she had and bought it.
—Matthew 13. 44-45
Beloved, you are that pearl.
God has given away everything
to have you.
God has let go of every possession
to buy the field of the whole world
because you are in it.
This is the Realm of God.
