What a Pearler

30 September, 2003 9:49 AM

'The Kingdom of heaven is like a man who is looking for fine pearls, and when he finds one that is unusually fine, he goes and sells everything he has , and buys that pearl.' Matthew 13:45-46.

What passionate imagery of the Kingdom of God.

I was once given this little parable to speak on. I was preparing to present a challenge to 'give up all' for the 'pearl of Jesus' when a soft voice whispered in my inner ear.

'You're the pearl Darren.'

There began another journey of discovery, healing and freedom.



This is interesting, because I had a similar experience.

Very early last year, one of those times when I was all depressed and stressed out about not being good enough, I was writing a letter to God and agonising about others' disapproval of me. Towards the end I just saw in my mind's eye a perfect, round, shining pearl and I felt that God was telling me that I am a precious pearl to Him.

It was quite unusual because I rarely ever "see" things... and it's something I've remembered ever since. (Although believing it certainly takes some work!)
