Verse of the Day – Luke 9:25
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self? — Luke 9:25
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
I once had a picture in my office of a hearse pulling a U-Haul trailer with the caption, “Who says you can’t take it with you?” While it is humorous, it is also wrong … DEAD wrong. If we lose our souls in the pursuit of things, what of lasting value have we gained? Is it worth losing the only thing that really matters?
Loving Father, help me keep my eyes on what is truly valuable and use the other blessings in my life to bring you glory and to bless others. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
