Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
It is very easy to get entangled and preoccupied with the things of this world. So much so that we literally gain the world and lose our personal walk with God. As long as we are on this earth, we will always have goals to chase after.
It could be your dream job, getting a Ph.D., a spouse, a management position, it could even be a goal to become the president, or to be a billionaire, you name it. These are all great things, don’t get me wrong. But then, what next? What about eternity? What are your plans and ultimate goal for eternity?
This world is filled with people who have gained the world but have lost their souls. They look well on the outside, but they are far from well on the inside. Jesus is beckoning on you today. Are you on the path to gaining this entire world and losing your precious soul? Quickly retrace your steps, and reset your priorities.
God bless you.

Lord Jesus, thank you for chosen to reveal the father to me. I accept you as the only way to God. Please teach me how to follow you daily. Come into my heart, i confess you as my Lord and savior. May my life from today be a sacrifice to you. Amen!
