“And upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it” (Matthew 13:46).
Equating the finding of one pearl of great value to the discovery of the kingdom of heaven, the point isn’t what must be sacrificed to have it, but what is given up in response to it having been found. What the uninitiated view as sacrifice, we understand as an appropriate response to “the riches of his glorious inheritance” (Ephesians 1:18). It’s a matter of perspective. Is your passion the “here” or the “hereafter?” What are you here after? Want more!
