Profit

Something to think about.

Profit

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? Matthew 16:26

The amassing of great things power, influence, prestige, accomplishments, and wealth were very much sought after in Jesus’s day as they are today. And the question He asked is just as relevant today as it was yesterday.  “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?” But the opposite can be asked as well. If you’re living a life of extreme poverty what will that profit you? It really isn’t a question of extremes or position. When you stand before God your wealth or poverty will not matter. You won’t be judged on either, you will be judged on whether you choose to obey God or not. Wealth and poverty will pass away but your choice will be eternal.
