Your gift for the world is needed. It’s like a pearl that has been developed and entrusted to you in order to share it. You shouldn’t contain or restrict it forever.
There are three types of pearls: natural, cultured and fake. Natural pearls are formed when some grit gets into the shell of an oyster which protects itself by covering the grit with shell-like material. These are God-orchestrated natural, one-of-a-kind pearls, just like your gift.
On the other hand, cultured pearls are man-orchestrated then cultured during their formation. They’re all perfect and created to be copies of each other. Dont copy other people’s gifts and strengths, yours are perfect as they are unique to only you.
Then there are fake pearls, which are made from glass, ceramics or plastic then varnish-coated. Need I say more about fake pearls? Maybe not.
Some hints for you:
Your natural pearl or gift has been fashioned maybe by an irritant and hurts but has a purpose and will eventually turn out to be a blessing. Hang in there.
Don’t look at others’ pearls. There’s no anointing and they won’t work.
