Matthew 13:45–46 (ESV)
The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value
the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
Today’s parable is slightly different than yesterday’s parable. This merchant was busily seeking to discover fine pearls. When he found one perfect in size, shape, and color, he sold all he had and
bought it. Earthly possession cannot compare with the kingdom of heaven.
I pray: O Lord you call us a prized possession.
Likewise, we to call you (Jesus) a prized possession. Thank you for everything you have done for us. Amen.
