SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (A)

GOOD NEWS!   1 Kgs 3:5, 7–12 / Rom 8:28–30 / Mt 13:44–52 or 13:44–46


    If you could ask for anything, what would it be? In W. W. Jacobs’ classic story “The Monkey’s Paw,” a couple’s first wish is granted at a terrible price, and the owners realize what the old adage tells us: “Be careful what you wish for - you just might get it.”

    In today’s first reading, Solomon is given the opportunity to ask God for anything. After praying, he finally asks for wisdom, that he might discern what is right. God affirms the goodness of the wish and, noting that he didn’t ask for riches or victory in war, grants it gladly.

    In spite of some more questionable choices later in his life, Solomon will always be remembered for this request. Wisdom, as we find out in another part of Scripture, is God’s “unfailing treasure; those who gain this treasure win the friendship of God” (Wisdom 7:14).

    In the Gospel, Jesus compares the kingdom of God both to a treasure and to someone who searches for one. I think the desire for the kingdom of God and the desire for wisdom come out of the same longing in our hearts. We might find God’s wisdom in surprising places, but once we find it, we must be willing to give all we have to acquire it, for it will help us know what is of God.

    At the same time, the kingdom of God goes in search of us. Maybe we are God’s pearls; with Wisdom as a guide, each of us can grow as children and friends of God, knowing what is right.

    Find Wisdom, then, and do what you must to get it. When we do this, we will also find God.
