When all I can see are oyster shells

Matthew 13:45-46

Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

When all I can see are the hard, rough, ugly, and stubborn oyster shells Jesus reminds me in this parable, that He sees, and He died, for the shiny pearls inside of us.

He knows that we are not perfect, and He didn’t die for perfection, He died for the sinner, because He knew that we have the potential to be beautiful pearls.

So the next time I want to judge someone because of their differences to me, I ask God to remind me that He died for the pearl inside of them, and inside of me.
