I Am the Pearl of Great Value

“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!
Matthew 13:45-46
This is a thought that struck me this morning. I'm accustomed to thinking of the pearl representing heaven, a reward so valuable that I would willingly forsake any- and everything if I could thereby obtain it.

But this parable works the other way too. God, the all-powerful creator, sees me as being so valuable that He made the ultimate exchange in order to obtain my friendship.

I am that valuable pearl. And so are you.
