From Rev Sue Ann Yarbrough
Scripture: Matthew 13:45-46
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it."
While Jesus was probably talking about developing an unwavering focus on God, this evening I find myself thinking about the many people who have dedicated themselves to their work in long term care communities. How they have worked through multiple shutdowns and created inspired ways to tend to their residents. I believe that many of the staff members have viewed their work as a pearl of great price, one that is worth the investment of time and heart. I am grateful for their dedication and tenacity, and I am blessed to know some of them as friends.
