This is reminiscent of the call to the rich, young man who is told to sell everything he has, give the money to the poor, and come follow Jesus (Matthew 19:16-22). The "world" and our culture think it is silly to give up everything for God, but it is the invisible that is the really real. The Kingdom of God is the ultimate truth of the universe. The games played on Wall Street, Main Street, and Pennsylvania Avenue are just that: games. The pretend world that we see has everything backwards and upside down. The Kingdom of God refuses to obey our rules or logic and refuses to bow down to us. In the first half of life we try to find out who we are and how we fit into this world. We are concerned with our own security, with "my story" and "our story." We spend most of our time trying to get ahead and "make it." It is a necessary part of growing up and maturing. The mis- take most people make is that they think it is the ONLY concern in life. The second half of life is about wisdom and the story of the "I AM." (This is who God told Moses He was in Exodus 3:14, Yahweh, which means "I am.") But we don't get there until the first half of life fails us, until everything falls apart and we see the folly of our thinking. For many people it is a personal calamity. Perhaps a loved one dies or is terribly sick, or it might be a financial collapse or an addiction prob- lem. A friend or family member commits suicide, your marriage falls apart, or you go bankrupt. In the end we learn what Fr. Richard Rohr teaches, "Your life isn't about you, it's about life." But when we are all focused on me and us, we become terribly frightened when things col- lapse. When life falls apart we try so hard to fix it. We try to apply the rules and logic of the kingdoms of this world to make things better. In the Kingdom of God, up is down, down is up, out is in, in is out, the first are last, and the last are first. We can cling to life as it was, remain stuck in the first half of life, and self destruct, or we can surrender, be transformed, and embrace a new life by leaving everything behind and enter the King- dom of God. Until we truly meet the Holy One, we will be forever trapped in our own little kingdoms, the kingdoms of the world, where we are forever trying to shore up and meet our security needs and "build bigger barns" (Luke 12:16-21). As we grow older, there comes a time when we must give up the charade and give up control, or we will come to the end of our life miserable. We CAN make a choice to be joyful. It begins with sur- render and a falling into the arms and love of God. And Matthew 13:44? Yes, it is the hinge to a doorway to many things. For me, it represents the doorway from darkness to light, despair to joy, knowledge to wisdom, and a world with me at the center and in control to one in which I surrender all control and put the Kingdom at the cen- ter. I had to leave everything behind that I thought was everything. The irony is that what I thought was everything is really nothing. The fancy car, the big house, my own personal empire of whatever I thought was virtuous, is in fact nothing. What I thought was nothing is everything. It is the great reversal of life, of God. And yes, it is painful, but it is possi- ble and it does lead to the joy of God's Kingdom. Jesus describes this life and its joy in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7. What do you need to sell and give away to be happy? Peace be v,t N u.
