Verse of the Day: Don’t forfeit your soul

36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 8:36-37 (NKJV)

36 And how do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul in the process? 37 Is anything worth more than your soul?

Mark 8:36-37 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

Many people spend all their energy seeking pleasure. Jesus said, however, that worldliness, which is centered on possessions, position, or power, is ultimately worthless. Whatever you have on earth is only temporary; it cannot be exchanged for your soul.

If you work hard at getting what you want, you might eventually have a “pleasurable” life, but in the end you will find it hollow and empty. Are you willing to make the pursuit of God more important than the selfish pursuits? Follow Jesus, and you will know what it means to live abundantly now and to have eternal life as well.
