Pearls of Great Price

Pearls of Great Price

You may be familiar with Jesus’ parable in Matthew 13, when he explains how the kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant who finds a choice pearl, and then sells everything he owns so he can go back and purchase it.

I love how the Passion Translation reiterates this: “Heaven’s kingdom realm is also like a jewel merchant in search of rare pearls. When he discovered one very precious and exquisite pearl, he immediately gave up all he had in exchange for it.”
