Irritated? You Might Get A Pearl!

by Hazel Straub

When others rub you the wrong way, God uses them as sandpaper to refine you and smooth your rough edges. Often the thing that irritates the most, show things inside of you. Thank God for irritants, as they are the catalyst for becoming more like Christ.

Mollusks produce pearls from sand and other irritants that get trapped inside their shell.  The pearl is highly prized and valuable. Those things that are difficult, often turn into things of great beauty. Rejoice!

Heaven’s kingdom realm is also like a jewel merchant in search of rare pearls. When he discovered one very precious and exquisite pearl, he immediately gave up all he had in exchange for it. (Matthew 13:45-46 TPT)

  1. Isn’t it ironic how some of the irritating things others do, we likely do yourself? Great analogy!
