Short Stories (Stories for the Youth), book by Father Tadros Yacoub Malaty

313- False Pearls Image: One white Pearl صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: لؤلؤة واحدة بيضاء - اللؤلؤ Image: One white pearl.

صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: لؤلؤة واحدة بيضاء - اللؤلؤ.

Sandy went to her father confessor complaining of what some believers did with her. She was blocked by some church attendants because they were hypocrites, “Why does God allow such thing?”

“Don’t be afraid for, On the Great Day of the Lord, all true believers will be glorified and all hypocrites will be defamed. Let me narrate to you the story of the false pearls.”

A minister was serving in a meeting for ladies. They were putting on unique jewelry and pearls. The minister said, “The effect of X ray is amazing. It reveals dear jewelry and pearls.”

He switched off most of the lights and he directed the rays to some jewelry which was glittering when all lights were switched on. Soon, the true jewels glittered while the beautiful false pearls lost their magnificence.

→ English translation of the story here at اللآلئ المزيفة. Divider

+ Your Holy Spirit burns what is false inside me

And renews what is true.

+ May Your Spirit work in me,

For, in Your Great Day, the goats shall be distinguished from the sheep,

And the tares from the wheat.

Then, Your saints will be glorified,

While the evil shall be judged.
