The Bible verses to meditate on this week are Luke 9:25-26

“For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself?

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels”

These are some of my favorite Bible verses. These verses remind me of what our real purpose is on this earth. Every time  I lean too much toward this world and all the glory, I think about the real purpose of my life is here in this earth.

Things that I tend to focus on too much in this life are: job, finances, fame, power, etc…  I will bring NOTHING when I leave this earth. Nothing!  If you know that you are going to die in 5 days, nothing matters in this world anymore. I would rather have my Father than the whole world that I definitely know will vanish anyway.

Love you Jesus-

    1. I recall that this is the first Bible verse I memorized and meditated on as a kid. The King James Version, the one I memorized, reads:

      For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

    Speak Your Mind
