Matthew 13:44-46 NIV “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.  “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.  When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
As we go through life all of us are searching for pearls. To some that treasure is having as much fun as we can until we die. And we don’t mind or are too ignorant to know that it will cost us everything we have. To others the treasures of life is winning awards; accolades, affirmations and recognition from men (fame). And this too will cost us everything we have. Having as much sex we can enjoy is the ultimate pleasure and treasure to some. And yes this too will cost us everything we have. People don’t mind spending whatever it cost on their pleasures and treasures. But oh how sad many will be when they find out what they were looking for all along was really Jesus Christ. How miserable they will be (forever) once they learn that He was the only thing; the only person that could give them true happiness and contentment. Their misery will be so overwhelming because it will be too late.
Our world is hostile to Jesus. But He is the hidden Pearl. Those who find Him find life (eternally). The many who reject Him find utter misery (eternally). Jesus is the hidden pearl worth the highest price; including our lives. He alone is worth giving up everything in order to attain Him:
Matthew 19:29-30 KJV “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.  But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.”
