    Mary said to Jesus: “What are your disciples like?”
     
    Jesus said: “They are like little children living in a field that is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Give our field back to us.' The children take off their clothes in front of them to give it back, and they return their field to them.

    So I say, if the owner of a house knows that a thief is coming, he will be on guard before the thief arrives and will not let the thief break into his house and steal his possessions.

    As for you, be on guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength, or the thieves will find a way to reach you, for the trouble you expect will come. Let there be among you one who understands.

    When the crop ripened, the reaper came quickly with sickle in hand and harvested it. Anyone with two ears will hear!"

    Jesus said: “If your leaders say, 'Look, the kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of heaven will precede you. If they say, 'It’s in the sea,' then the fish will precede you.

    The kingdom is inside you and it is outside you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you dwell in poverty, and you are that poverty."
