25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? (Matthew 16:25-26 NIV)
Gain is a great thing. It is something we all want. However, when it comes to sacrifice for gain, then all to often we are not in. Even if we were told we could have more thank we could ever imagine, but we had to give up all we have, there would probably be hesitation. Maybe even outright unacceptable because we know what we have right now. Forefitting that for what we cannot see….
Yet, what does it prosper us to gain the whole world, yet forfeit our soul!?
