Mark 8:36 - "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?"
· We Price Everything
We live in a world where everything has a price. The prices of our stocks change every day. The value of our house and vehicles change monthly. We have asked that all important question many times for many different types of products: “How much does this cost?”
· The Cost Of Your Soul
When was the last time you considered the cost of your soul?
According to Jesus, He asks a very important question for us to consider and that question is “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”
It is Christmas time and we are buying gifts for our loved ones. So I would like to ask you a question, “What have you done for your soul?
· Cherokee Legend
There is a Cherokee legend that goes like this:
“An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. A fight is going on inside me, he said to the boy. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil – he is filled with anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, lies, and pride.” He continued, ‘The other is good – he is filled with joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, generosity, truth, and faith.
The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every person, too. The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, ‘Which wolf will win?’ The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”
The answer is “The Word of God.” Even the apostle Paul pointed us in this direction when he wrote in the book of Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Give yourself the gift that will pay dividends through all eternity.
Think About This:
God still speaks to those who take time to read His Word.
