Matthew 13:33

The Parable of the Great Pearl

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.

  • With the proceeds from a garage sale, what worthy item would you purchase?
  • What do you think the great pearl represents in this story?
  • What does this parable teach you about the value of the kingdom and with what emotion and energy should it be pursued?


Holy God, thank You for our blessings today. Strengthen us to help bring about Your kingdom here on earth. Empower us to be Your hands and feet in the world today. Help us to recognize what is of true worth in our daily lives. Amen.
