“And how does a man benefit if he gains the whole world and loses his soul in the process?” (Mark 8: 36, the Living Bible)
Let’s tend to our souls. Let care for the inner spirit, the essence of who we are individually, and awake to our greater purpose.
It may seem like gaining riches and fame, ease in the material world, is the ultimate goal. And there certainly isn’t anything wrong with prosperity. But our motives and methods make a difference. For to seek gain at the expense of others, is costly to our souls. It moves against that love within that makes us whole and keeps us secure in our being.
If we seek power in order to feel we can control others, to show we are better than them, or to achieve accolades, we deny God Who is good and the only power. We try to take what isn’t ours to have, and in doing so, we lose the integrity that is also our protection. We may gain attention, but we lose our faith, our goodness, our security, and our hearts.
Let’s pause and strive for what is right and good, knowing we can achieve more with God and His intention, and we can keep our souls intact as well.
