 Read 2 Corinthians 4:7-12

If you had a ‘treasure,’ where would you keep it?

Do you have a safe, a lock box, or a safe deposit box at the bank?

In these words of Paul, we are reminded that God has entrusted ‘treasure’ to us — in all of our fragility. Here we are compared to ‘clay jars’ which can easily break. In Matthew 13, Jesus is entrusting ‘treasure’ to his listeners. Does this strike you as amazing in any way?

Why or why not?
