What is Better than the Whole World?

"The first of these two parables are intended to instruct believers to prefer the Kingdom of Heaven to the whole world, and therefore to deny themselves and all the desires of the flesh, that nothing may prevent them from obtaining so valuable a possession." (John Calvin on the Parable of the Treasure, Matthew 13:44)

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
