Good Morning Friends & Families, I hope each of you are well and fully energized to enjoy this weekend. In the early hours of this day a certain thought came into my heart which I want to bring before you this morning. It is taken from the Gospel of Mathew Chapter 13 verses 45 and 46 which states, “The Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”
I want you to think along with me, I believe you would agree that the love of GOD is an extravagant love. Each souls born into this world longs for such an extravagant love, a love that is willing to let go of everything in order to possess that which is beyond price. If you have been settling for less than this great, extravagant love, consider the worth of the things you hold to so tightly, and compare them to the priceless gift of God’s love.
Learn in choosing to cultivate love and that will inspire you and lift your soul. Spend more time cultivating your spiritual life and seek GOD’s love. It’s a love that never fails and its immutable. Decide what you are willing to give to seek and possess the Pearl of great price. You are the apple of his eye! Knowing the love of GOD will change your circumstances into a moment of joy.
Therefore, let me exhort you, look today at where you put your time and energy. Think of one change you could make to pursue the higher priorities of love, just do it as time allows you today. Remember our Redeemer lives!
