Reflections from the Pew 142

After the top ten Old Testament stories, we are now looking at the top ten Parables. These stories are are so well known that we sometimes forget their simple message. At number 7 is The Pearl.

It is found in Matthew 13:45-46 it may be the shortest parable.

The Pearl

“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.

Here Jesus tells us that the message is very valuable, the most valuable thing we could possess.
