You may recall the parable that Jesus told of the man who went and sold all that he had to purchase a pearl of great price. This story illustrates a truth that is as valid today as it was in early Christian times. What do you truly value and do you pursue it, come what may?
A pearl grows under water within a shell as the result of an irritation. What seems at first inconsequential becomes something of great value and beauty. WIth nurturing a pearl becomes something you can reflect upon, and indeed, it will reflect your truth back to you.
Beloveds, you too are a pearl of great price! You have been fed and watered and nurtured so that you may reflect the DIvine presence within you. Let your kaleidoscope of colors, your gifts and talents be reflected through all that you are and all that you do. Share your brilliance with all who are open to receive your wondrous offerings from within. We see your light. ~ Merlin
