THE LITTLE PEARL

I pick a pearl of wisdom,
From God’s treasury,
And marvel at the many ways,
It’s beauty speaks to me.

As I ponder on the Word,
My spirit glows within,
To know God loves the sinner,
Although He hates the sin.

I place my pearl of wisdom,
With the others in my soul,
And make myself a promise,
To reflect on it once more.

Next day at quiet time
Alone with God I realise,
I thought not once about the pearl,
I had so highly prized.

Although I did not think about
The Word that I had read,
I pray I lived its truth in all
I said and did instead.

Myra D’souza / 13.6.1999
