Mark 8:36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
This is one of my favorite verses because it is something we all have to deal with daily. We live in a society that puts value on how much and what you have, such a materialistic world. A person's worth and status is based upon how you compare to your neighbor. Bigger is better, more, more, more and spend, spend, spend.
It is hard to not get caught up in this mindset, a true trap of the devil. Selling your soul for the next new thing. I read a book awhile back that hit this on the head, hard to read but such a valuable point.
Value your soul. Evaluate what's really important. Less is more. Live a simple life. Set true priorities.
