Finding your pearl through COVID19

A precious pearl formed through friction
  • Have you been deliberate and persevered to seek and find your pearl from God — your purpose, your identity in Christ.
  • Are we measuring our purpose/pearl in this time to God’s Kingdom standard or a broken world?
  • Have we been deliberate about the cost needed to unlock the pearl, something of great value for God’s kingdom purpose?
  • TIME: Are you being productive with your time? Personal devotion time with God in this time is most critical to refill empty reserves. Connecting with family and loved ones. Busy is not productive.
  • TREASURE: Are you being a good steward of your finances and other physical resources (e.g. property)? The economic repercussion of COVID will be deep and long — update your budget for a worst case. Then stretch your budget, be deliberate about sacrifices and give generously with a joyful heart. It is ok to say No.
  • TALENT: Are you using your talents and gifts most efficiently? Prevent increased anxiety by doing things we love doing, that we do well, with ease. It is never a good idea to impose significant change on yourselves during a crisis. Stay true to what you are good at and avoid the temptation to help people in ways which would frustrate you and them.
