  • its a comparison to heaven...like the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls...when he finds the greatest pearl he sells everything he owns to buy it....they're stories on how to make ppl understand heaven

  • Um, it's a story that people can easily relate to or understand that teaches some sort of lesson.
