Pearls were the first gem treasured by ancient man. Refined by nature, this precious gem was gathered along with an important food source by coastal peoples - comparable to the prize found in a box of Cracker Jack's when we were young.
Pearls are commonly reserved for special occasions. Sadly, the iridescent qualities of pearls are discolored with a lack of use. Pearls need to soak up liquids and oils to retain their lustre. Packaged away, they will dry out fading and cracking. Just like muscles, you use them or lose them.
The Word of God are Pearls of Wisdom. You use them, or you lose them. Jesus said to his disciples in Mark 4:24-25 "And he said to them, "Take heed what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you. For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away."
Read the Word - understand the Word. If you cannot understand there are great commentaries a Google search away. Meditate on the Word and share the Word. Wear the Word - for by wearing the Word - more revelation will be given to you. If not - even what you do know will be taken away.
