I think we can all relate to irritating people or circumstances. Maybe times in your life when things are so hard you just don’t know how you will breath your next breath with out pain and you just don’t want one more person saying all things work out.
I have been there and at times I still am. No one likes hurt and discomfort but I was thinking of pearls whether you find them pretty or not no one can argue on how they come about. Pearls are formed when a piece of sand become trapped in the oyster shell. The oyster protecting its self against this by secreting a liquid surrounding the grit until it becomes something so valuable that people pay quite a lot for this pearl.
I do not wish to discount people going through pain but to help you see that the trials and pain of today are the pearls of tomorrow.
Isaiah 61:3 Give unto them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…..
So the next time that person rubs you wrong how about thinkg of them as they are helping make your life full of pearls.
