“For what is the use of a man gaining the whole world if he loses or forfeits his own soul?” (Luke 9: 25, JB Phillips New Testament)

We can wish to gain a lot in this world, but are we recognizing the real cost? We can accumulate riches, accolades, power, but can these things really guarantee a true contentment or a real understanding of what is right and good?

If we sacrifice our spiritual growth for material possessions, we give up the very thing that can truly satisfy. Our wholeness, our integrity of being, is our place of rest and joy. We must realize and nurture our true sense of worth, that eternal identity that isn’t made grander by amassing things in this world, but by knowing ourselves as God made us to be.

If we chase after human accomplishments and become someone who we no longer even recognize, we have exchanged our own souls for some flimsy identity. It is surely right to expect to flourish, but if our motives are less than honest and good or we are driven by personal will or by the opinions of others, any gains may come at a greater loss of what really matters.

Let’s not give up the infinite heaven of being true to ourselves by striving for the limited and limiting things of earth.
