I went to a womens retreat last April, the person running it (main speaker) started to talk about this verse with us:
Matthew 13:44-46 – “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” “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.”
She went on to explain that she has read this passage several times before and never realized that he is calling us his pearl. Jesus died for us, God gave everything – his only son, because he thinks we are worth a great value.
I love this sooo much that i bought a bouquet charm that will represent my relationship with the Lord. The pearl is in the iron casing. And its my something blue.
