 Read Matthew 13:45

Who do you know who is like the merchant in this parable?

Not long ago I saw the movie The Flight of the Butterflies which tells the story of Dr. Fred Urquhart and his wife Nora who devoted their lives to understanding the migration of the monarch butterfly.

One might re-write the parable to say, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like the scientist who spent his life in pursuit of understanding the monarch butterfly…” What modern day example might you substitute into this parable?
