Is It Worth It?

What will you gain, if you own the whole world but destroy yourself? What would you give to get back your soul?

(Matthew 16:26 CEV)

What if you could achieve or acquire all the things in this life, except a relationship with God? Is it worth it? Jesus asked and continues to ask His hearers today. The rich man in Luke chapter sixteen would tell you that it’s not. The man who led what would seem like a great life for many, spent eternity in the most dreaded place–hell. It was then that he sought God, but it was too late. He then begged Abraham to warn his brothers–who were still living–so that they wouldn’t make the same mistake he did. Let’s take a leaf from this man’s story and pursue what’s important and life-saving, rather than what’s temporary and self-gratifying.

A life lived without God is a wasted life.
