“The kingdom of the heavens is like a traveling merchant seeking fine pearls. Upon finding one pearl of high value, away he went and promptly sold all the things he had and bought it.” (Matthew 13:36, 45, 46)
Pearls are considered beauties of creation. What do you think about pearls?
The most beautiful pearls — the kind used for jewelry — are perfectly round.
Jesus in one of his parables told about the great value of a pearl. He compared it to the Kingdom of
God. He says that a merchant saws a rare pearl and was disposed to sell all his possessions to buy that pearl. The merchant was aware of the inestimable value of that pearl. Yes, he recognized the value of what he had found and was willing to make huge sacrifices to get ahold of it.
God’s Kingdom is the greatest blessing Jehovah has deserved for humans. Jesus himself offers his life to grant us this promise. What do you know about God’s Kingdom? If Jesus was disposed to offer his perfect life does this not mean that great attention and an accurate investigation is needed?
“The kingdom of the heavens is the goal toward which men press, and those pressing forward are seizing it.”—Matthew 11:12.
