Are you making your soul a priority?
August 10, 2009
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
Did you know that you can neglect your soul to the point that you can lose it? That’s exactly what Jesus is saying in today’s verse.
Every day, people make other things higher priorities than their souls. Some people are fixated on their physical condition, and they go to great lengths to exercise and eat right. Yet they do little to maintain the health of their soul.
Then there are others who focus on developing their minds. They pursue and often attain the highest levels of education, but in the process they fail to expand and enrich their soul’s relationship with God.
And of course, there are others who get caught up in wealth. They’re the kind of people who make business deals all day long, but they fail to do business with their soul.
Perhaps today you’d admit that you’ve been putting other things… even good things… ahead of your soul, which is destined for eternity. If so, remember this is serious business.
It’s time to do business with your soul!
YOUR SOUL IS DESTINED FOR ETERNITY. SO DO BUSINESS WITH IT TODAY!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
