We’re spoiled aren’t we? Have you needed Him today enough to dig for a scripture to meet a need that you had. Think about the pearl for a minute; it’s a hidden treasure that someone has to work to find. Somebody had to dig for it, sweat for it, sacrifice time or energy for it. Somebody had to suffer disappointment for it opening many oyster shells that were empty before they found the treasure.
Read through the verses in Mathew again, Think about the priceless pearl. The costly one, the jewel …the one worked for. “Do you own a strand of real pearls?” A necklace or maybe a pair of earrings…think about the woman who received her pearls as a wedding gift from her husband 40 years ago, a priceless treasure to appreciate. Who wants a strand of real pearls? We all do…we desire to have that thing that is precious and valuable. Worth the wait.
Well guess what?! He puts a REAL pearl in His Word for us everyday and He’s waiting on us to desire it …to dig for it.
The man in Mathew joyfully sold all he had for the pearl; it was worth that much to him.
