How like spouses we are, Lord! Today’s Scripture is Matthew 13:44-46. In the parable of the pearl, I was prompted to consider–who is the precious one? Is Christ the pearl, and are we the ones who sell all to have Him? Or are we the pearl, on whom God has set His love and gave His Son’s life to redeem us for His own?
The truth is clear is Scripture that we are both precious to each other. He gave all for us, and we give all for Him, though imperfectly.
Like a husband who woos and then works to provide and like a wife who casts all her hope upon him and joins her journey to his, so we are to each other. Love divine.
