The Pearl

Pearls are a product of an amazing process.

It starts when a grain of sand or some foreign matter becomes trapped in the oyster, causing irritation. The oyster secretes two chemicals, a mineral substance, to coat the foreign particle. Ultimately, the irritation becomes a pearl. 

Pearls are also a product of time. It took 3-5 years to make the pearl you see in the image below.

Leadout Ministries is working on a book to write about this metaphor and the parallels to the Christian journey!
