The Treasured Pearl

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well."  Matthew 6:33

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it."  Matthew 13:44-46 (NRSV)

This quest you are on...

This pursuit for purpose...

This search for significance…

This longing to make something of yourself…

This hunger to be someone…

This desire for something more…

beats in the core of every human heart.

We innately know that for which our life longs is out there, somewhere.  So we search, intently. 

There at the core of all that is lies the truth that has no beginning and will ever cease to be.

So, do we have the courage to let go of all that we once thought valuable?  Do we have the faith to purchase that field of treasure?  Will we dive for that pearl of greatest value? 

There is no need to continue running aimlessly toward lies that masquerade as truth.

For the kingdom of heaven has been found.

It is worth everything.  It is the pearl of infinite value.

May you find peace this week!\
