Day 22

You have value

Matthew 13:45-46 (NKJV)
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls,46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
Oyster and the Pearl
•Natural Pearls form when an irritant - usually a parasite and not the proverbial grain of sand - works its way into an oyster, mussel, or clam. As a defense mechanism, a fluid is used to coat the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating, called 'nacre', is deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed.

Layers and layers of LOVE
- We don’t spit people out, we cover them with the LOVE of God that covers us because we know that they are a pearl not a parasite.
- Others see no value in them, but LOVE demands we see past their present and calls to their potential.
- You might seem like you don’t belong but hold on, let the Church do what it does best.  Let us LOVE you unconditionally, let us COVER you, PROTECT you, let the POWER of LOVE transform you
