“Also, the kingdom of heaven is like this. A man is looking for fine pearls and when he finds one that is unusually fine, he goes and sells everything he has, and buys that pearl.” Matthew 13:45-46
Jesus used this parable to strongly emphasize on value; the things that are precious and valuable to us individually. Some females used their beauty and bodies to exchange for luxurious life, some males scarified their dignity for promotions and even worse many lost their priorities. All these uncertainties are not worth to compare as going after this.
Paul, the apostle had also been looking for the unusual fine pearl before his conversion. He was at the prime of his life in his career and he was a great persecutor of Christian. Like as mentioned in the parable, this man could be refer as Paul who after his encounter with Jesus sold off his identity, his future and his ambition to be a true believer of Christ Jesus to purchase for himself the kingdom of God beyond pricing.
St Paul was the only character in the Bible who dared to say : Imitate me then, just as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1
He bought the unusual finest pearl with his whole life at such a price. It is worth to pay the price in order to inherit the kingdom of heaven.
They who dive the word of God bring up rare pearl.
