Matthew 13:45-46 - Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. Throughout our lives we buy into the truths Espoused by those who claim to know the Lord. They shout their wares from steeples on the roofs And show small pearls of wisdom to the horde. We gather everything that we have learned And think we have the total wealth of God, But then one day by revelation yearned The essence of our Savior leaves us awed. Oh, only in the heart of Christ you find That one true pearl of wisdom worth it all! Give all you have in spirit, body, mind, Take up His cross and follow His plain call. Here lies the mystery for what it’s worth: He died for you. In faith you’ll find new birth.
