Today Jesus tells us to pursue real treasure, treasure in heaven. Our culture is in headlong, frantic search for pleasure, wellbeing, wholeness. But only the Lord can bring wellbeing and wholeness. The pursuit of joy through material things will end in bitterness and division. The Lord is our only joy
Is this Sunday's Gospel just a story about the power of Jesus over the wind and the sea? It is so much more than that! In fact, it is a paradigm of the faith. Faith is all about being founded on God and this helps us go through the storms of life to the joy and freedom on the other side. God is not our chaplain or lucky charm that we keep in our pocket, sleeping, while we do our own thing, invoking him when things go wrong. Life IS a storm and, with God, we pass over to joy and freedom.
