Thus when God speaks from Heaven in the New Testament, he only says one thing—”This is my Son, my Beloved, listen to him!” That means that the merchant we’ll look at tomorrow, and the hired hand or renter we looked at on Sunday, are not making risky decisions when they liquidate their assets for one single possession. This is not high risk; it is smart business. It is a wise purchase not a sacrifice. It is a joy and not a burden.
