Keep being an irritant and who knows how big the final pearl will be.
I was rereading the entry this sentence was part of. And I got to thinking. Warning amateur philosopher at play.
Jesus told the story of the merchant in search of pearls. How the man found one that was the very best of all and sold everything he had to posses it. And I got to thinking about how pearls are made. What begins as a tender oyster’s attempt to protect itself from something that hurts becomes a jewel that is precious to us. So, try this out on the next person who says that we all need to be neat, orderly, follow our leaders without question and color within the lines.
“I am a pearl beyond price. I’m just not finished yet.”
