“The Kingdom of God is like a pearl of great price…” While this is forever true, there’s another way to look at this parable. The man in the story sells all his possessions to acquire this pearl, because he knows it is worth sacrificing everything he has for it. Does this sound familiar? God looks at us, and says here is My beloved son, My beloved daughter, a pearl of great price who is worth sacrificing everything for. Jesus died on the cross, giving everything he had, because having us for eternity in heaven with Him was worth losing His life.
How great a love must someone have to give everything they own for one small pearl! How great a love must our God have for each of us that He sacrificed His entire self to purchase our salvation! Even if you were the only human on earth who ever existed, Jesus would still have suffered and died to have you in heaven forever with Him. You are priceless in His eyes, and you are so very loved!!
