The Pearl of Great Price

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”—Matthew 13:45-46 (NIV)

Jesus used a precious pearl to symbolize the value of God’s Kingdom. In the parable The Pearl of Great Price, Jesus compares the journey of heaven to a merchant searching for fine pearls and selling everything he had to buy them. Are you giving your all to follow Jesus?

Heavenly Father, I long to live a worthy life and I’m hopeful that one day I will walk through the “pearly gates”!
