The Pearl of Great Value

There is no doubt of its value and great fear of its loss

Where is the kingdom?

And what does it cost?

Prophets of old foretold of its glory

Jesus the saviour told us its story

The pearl of great value it mustn’t be lost!

  

Sell your house

Sell your land

If it causes a stumble

Cut off your hand

Remember the pearl

Remember the plan

Invest in real riches

Not in the gold

The pearl of great value never goes old

The rich count investments and gloat in their gain

Forever in riches and never in pain

 

But what of the soul who has nothing, no riches to sell?

 

There is no doubt of its value and no fear of its loss

The price has been paid and the gem is secure

For you are the pearl the one who was lost

 

A reflection on the parable of the pearl. The poor in spirit are once again blessed. The rich have developed great mythologies\theologies – the result is that fear is intoduced into our hearts. The once simple message of the Gospel is confused by denominational bovine deposits.
