In the Gospel According to Matthew, right after a section of recorded parables, we read this:
 “Have you understood all these things?” They said to him, “Yes.”  And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”
Matthew 13:51–52 (ESV)
I have no idea what this means.
I love it. It is wonderful and marvelous and mysterious. Important truths have been opened to me in the reading of this short little parable. But I don't really know what he is talking about.
I do know that I genuinely want to be a scribe who has been trained for the Kingdom of Heaven.
